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: Burchest on April 12, 2007, 03:29:05 PM My wife has enjoyed Bruckner for years.

Quote from: Drasko on April 20, 2007, 05:41:56 AMSymphony No.9, Münchner Philharmoniker, April 1938 HMV (Preiser)Flowing, swift (very swift in Scherzo) but I don't find it rushed. Unsentimental but not cold, nonhistrionic but neither reticent, structuraly coherent reading with achieved formidable orchestral clarity for the time. Münchner Philharmoniker of '38 doesn't need cutting any slack. Sound decent for 1938, lacking the lowest of lows and having limited dynamic range but nicely detailed and with enough presence. I quite like it (it has high hummability factor*) but probably not to everybodys taste (most?).This is I believe the only existing Hausegger recording, of anything, pity.* I like to sing along with Bruckner, not that I can.
Quote from: Drasko on April 24, 2007, 07:39:22 AMSpeaking of the individuality of Bruckner's work, Sir Simon said, "When I went on safari to Africa for the first time, flying in little planes over enormous valleys full of zebra and wildebeest, the only music that ever came to mind was Bruckner's".
Quote from: Choo Choo on April 24, 2007, 08:11:23 AMHis Proms 7th was another turkey. Fortunately God whipped up a thunderstorm that killed the power here at the start of the Scherzo, sparing me further suffering (I was listening to the radio hookup.).

Quote from: Lilas Pastia on April 24, 2007, 04:15:04 PMThe next season of the Montreal symphony will include performances of the 2nd by Blomstedt and the 5th by Nagano.
Quote from: quintett op.57 on April 19, 2007, 02:16:48 PMDoes it mean my lady will start enjoying Bruckner as much as Chopin or Brahms as soon as I marry her?
Quote from: karlhenning on April 24, 2007, 08:04:50 AMThis is off-topic for Bruckner
Quote from: sound67 on May 05, 2007, 11:13:11 AMBut this one isn't:Bruckner is a bore. If God had wanted Wagner to write symphonies, he would have let him write symphonies.Prayers that last in excess of 50 minutes are always boring.
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on May 05, 2007, 12:48:05 PMWho let the curmudgeon in? No matter, I'll deal with him.You see 67, the boredom inherent in Bruckner's music doesn't bother us at all. Most of us are disciples of Dunbar, that classic philosopher in Catch-22 who asserted that life could be prolonged if you simply cultivated boredom. The more boring something is, the slower time passes. We've discovered Bruckner is perfect for this. Myself, I frequently listen to Celibidache's Bruckner...my god, boredom made manifest in soundwaves!!! I've done calculations and can state without doubt that I'm going to live roughly twenty times longer than the average western middle-class male who eschews Bruckner. I owe it all to dear Anton...and Celi of course Sarge
