JOHANNES BRAHMS / ANTON BRUCKNER
Carlo Maria Giulini & Wiener Philharmoniker
Wiener Philharmoniker [Vienna Philharmonic], Carlo Maria Giulini

[ Deutsche Grammophon / 8 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Thursday 20 June 2019

"The Bruckner recordings have - as far as I know - never been packaged together, but they are uniformly excellent, and show Giulini at his absolute best. They are gloriously played throughout, with the brass of the Vienna Philharmonic sounding magnificent. Perhaps this 8th has been overshadowed by Karajan's valedictory performance with this same orchestra and label, but this is just as moving a vision. The 7th and 9th are also exceptionally distinguished, with the 9th being sufficiently different from the conductor's Chicago EMI version to merit serious investigation of both. The 7th is both flowing and glowing, and outclasses Karajan on DG." ClassicalNet
