ANTON BRUCKNER
Bruckner: The Nine Symphonies
Wiener Philharmoniker [Vienna Philharmonic] / Sir Georg Solti, Claudio Abbado; Karl Böhm; Lorin Maazel; Zubin Mehta; Horst Stein

[ Decca Australian Eloquence / 9 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Sunday 1 September 2019

In the 1960s and 70s, Decca carried out a monumental project, recording all the Bruckner symphonies with an orchestra he was closely associated with - the Vienna Philharmonic - under a galaxy of great conductors. For the first time, internationally, the recordings are collected as a box. Several, like Böhm's Third and Fourth have long been recognised as classics of the gramophone. The dynamic Sir Georg Solti leads the Seventh and the Eighth; the young Claudio Abbado and the young Zubin Mehta lead the First and the Ninth. The set reproduces the original LP jackets, and represents a true landmark in the history of Bruckner symphonies and of the Vienna Philharmonic.

"Elegance, exquisite phrasing, beauty of string tone and lovely wind-playing, bite when needed and a real sense of commitment: all these qualities shine out from every disc." Gramophone

"If you love Bruckner, particularly as played by the Viennese, you are simply going to adore this." Classics Today

"This Bruckner 8th reissue is a real feast. Solti's achievement on this classic Decca recording is Bruckner as the composer surely wanted it and is hard to fault...it would be silly to miss the chance of buying this low price Australian Decca Eloquence pressing for the joy and reflection of it."
(MusicWeb July 2008 on the Solti 8th)
