Quote from: mahlertitan on April 06, 2007, 09:35:22 AMjust a question not related to the main topic. out of pure curiosity, why is that only males seem to enjoy the music of Bruckner?
Quote from: O Mensch on April 06, 2007, 10:29:19 AMSpeak for yourself. My wife loves Bruckner. One of our first dates was Bruckner 7th with Chailly/Concertgebouw.
Quote from: edward on April 06, 2007, 09:04:48 AMI didn't know this was coming out. I heard a radio aircheck of a Boulez 7th which I thought was absolutely outstanding, except for a slightly lightweight first movement, so I guess that's another $20 of mine going to the pockets of Universal.

Quote from: Lilas Pastia on April 18, 2007, 12:16:33 PMHeard this week:Symphony no 5. Otmar Suitner, Berlin Staatskapelle (Berlin Classics, 1990 recording). And another one by the BRSO under Sawallisch (Orfeo). I slightly prefer Suitner's orchestra and Berlin Classics' fabulous recording job. The maestro has some peculiar ideas about tempo, but in the end he carries the day with a very convincing performance. The Sawallisch is clearly more mainstream in terms of conception. An almost straussian reading (late Strauss, that is: Capriccio, not Frau ohne Schatten). Clear-headed, with incisive rythms and quite transparent textures. But slightly less well played and recorded. Not that it's deficient in any way, but the Berlin version is truly outstanding.
Quote from: O Mensch on April 18, 2007, 12:32:01 PMOK, I'm intrigued. I have heard great things about Suitner's Bruckner 4th as well and there seems to be an 8th as well. Unfortunately, none of the three are available at amazon. Where do can you get this stuff?
