Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 4 in E flat major ("Romantic"), WAB 104
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Few conductors have the proper touch in Bruckner's symphonies, and even fewer could boast of the special relationship that Bohm had with these works, having conducted them for many decades when they were still not widely popular, and even recording the Symphony No. 4 uncut in the era of 78 rpm records! Add to that Bohm's great affinity for the musicians of the VPO and their long involvement in playing this symphony, then it becomes apparent why this CD is an important item for anyone interested in Bruckner's music." -All Music

Gramophone Magazine
... the superlative Böhm who has been hiding his light under a bushel in recent years as a Bruckner conductor. This interpretation is really breathtaking in its unhurried majesty, about as broad as can be from start to finish (slow movement, scherzo and all) since Böhm has the rare gift of being able to sustain the broadest tempi convincingly and majesterially.
