I'd have to check where I got that Bernstein link. If it's still in my Outlook I can get it easily here. If it's on my hard disc only that means I 'd have to upload it. Now, that's something entirely different for me: I've never done it before!!

it's actually very simple.
1) go to www.mediafire.com
(create an account if you want to, although you don't have to create an account to upload)
2) upload your file. it takes some time, the speed depends on your internet connection.
3) copy and paste the link it gives you
4) done!

note: if the file(s) added together are less than 100mb, you should seriously consider zipping all the movements up, before upload.

Of those I wish I could hear are the various Blomstedts and Wands

Gielen / Baden-Baden and Dohnanyi / Cleveland are worth checking out. I have Wand / NDR (RCA '95) if you're interested.

Ben , yeah, all three of them! :D

I still have to warm up to Dohnanyi's Bruckner, but Gielen is tops in 5 and 7 (brisk and sinewy readings, totally different from his vast, expansive 8 )

Anyone here listened to Dohnanyi's Bruckner? Hurwitz gave him high marks, what do you guys think?

If I am not mixing up my conductors, about 10 years ago I had the opportunity to hear the Cleveland Orchestra live under Dohnanyi in the Bruckner Fifth Symphony and was most impressed with everything!

I was prepared to quibble greatly, since this is probably one of the trickiest symphonies to perform satisfactorily, but any quibbling dribbled away quickly!    $:)

Interesting discussion in the Melodya Madness thread about various orchestral sound cultures in Bruckner. Obviously this centered around Melodia issues (Mrawinsky's in particular).

John Berky is making available downloads from his private collection and features them as RECORDING OF THE MONTH on his web site. And guess what? For his first offering, he gives us the 4th symphony in a Melodya issue from 1978: Emil Tchakarov conducting the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra. ;D

And I'll be eagerly listening! :D

Hmm, that's an amazingly good thing for him to do - although it's totally unneccessary that he pays for the bandwidth (I imagine after a while the series will become rather popular) with so many free hosts around, hehe...

Berky is da man! I downloaded the recording weeks ago, it sounds fantastic! Maybe we should invite him to the forum? There is much we can learn from the Man.

Oh, btw, i recently acquired a broadcast of Nagano's Bruckner's 6th symphony with DSOB, it's actually a different performance from the harmonia mundi release, i'll upload it if anyone is interested.

I advised him to upload everything on Mediafire.com, but he believed that they(files) won't stay up very long ???.

How is the performance?  If it's good, I'm interested.   :)

That's not true, they stay up "indefinitely" according to Mediafire. I've had some stuff up over 3 months and they still download.

Nagano's 8th is surprisingly decent (a Deutsche Welle broadcast with his Berlin orchestra) . But that's the only Bruckner I ever heard him do that had any interest (the others are 3, 6 on disc and 9 live). He should stay away from Bruckner.

Actually, I don't know what to think.  I've only heard his Bruckner 8 referenced above, and it was a while back.  I remember it sounding kind of odd.  Are you implying that it his Bruckner 6 is not any good?   ???
