Notes & Reviews:
Stanislaw Skrowaczewski is regarded as one of the greatest living Bruckner conductors. Now in his 90th year, he brings a lifetime's wisdom to this work. Gramophone praised the 2012 concert performance saying, 'I never believed I would hear an account of a Bruckner symphony that rivaled Gunter Wand at his best, but last night I did!'
American Record Guide, January/February 2014
This performance was recorded in a Royal Festival Hall concert in 2012, when the conductor was 89. The pages of ARG over the decades have proclaimed Skrowaczewski as one of the great Brucknerians, and this is evidence that his powers have not diminished. This would be a good choice if you want a broad, spiritual approach; others in this vein would be Klemperer and Karajan, whose last recording was of this piece.
Recording information: Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, London (10/24/2012).
