Chailly's Bruckner
« on: May 20, 2007, 10:54:40 PM »
Are these recordings of Chailly's Bruckner symphonies in the same line as part of a cycle or are they all over the place in terms of date's, sound, etc?




etc, if applicable (can't find more on google).


And is this box set's recordings the same as those above? 




Sorry for the small picture.

And they are all over the place in terms of orchestras used - I think the Concertgebouw and Berlin RSO are two of them, might be another one in there.

The two orchestras he uses are the Concertgebouw (nos. 2,4,5,6,8 and 9) and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.

It's overall a very strong cycle -- I especially like Nos. 2, 5 and 8 -- very well played and recorded, with some interesting fillers that may not be included in the box set, like the four Wolf songs for voice and orchestra that accompany the Sixth Symphony.  My least favorite is Chailly's Fourth, that is perfectly well played but somehow doesn't hit that Bruckner "sublime" button in the way that say, Sawallisch does with the Philadelphia Orchestra in the same piece.

#7 and #3 are wonderful. I remember #7 being a little slow but miraculously well-played. I don't remember #4 much since it has been a while since I've listened to it, but at the time I thought Sawallisch is indeed better.

 The ones I like are 2 and 5. The rest of Chailly's Bruckner are not to my taste at all. My favourite Bruckner conductors are Karajan and Haitink. And of course Furtw√§ngler.

Chailly...

Bruckner...

A good combination!
