Notes & Reviews:

Ever since the tenure of its chief conductor Eduard van Beinum (1945 - 59), the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has cherished one of the greatest Bruckner symphonic traditions in the world. With this release of Bruckner's Sixth and Seventh Symphonies, Mariss Jansons and his Amsterdam-based orchestra add a new chapter to the RCO's impressive performance and recording history of Bruckner's works.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Of the two perhaps the Sixth, as one of Bruckner's shorter, sunnier works, would fit the conductor's approach better. The Seventh is similar. The opening is simply gorgeous, beautiful in tone and shape. The wonderful slow movement, taken a little on the quick side, is, again, most lovely. The final movements are better. So, wonderful music, wonderful orchestra and sonics.
