Bernard Holland on CSO's Bruckner Symphony No. 7
The Chicago Symphony has taken its cue from the practical and rewarding recycling of live performances by the London Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony and others. This, moreover, is Bruckner’s greatest music, with breathtaking wide-open spaces at its opening and a rumbling yet deeply touching slow movement. Mr. Haitink’s musical soundness and a great orchestra make an inviting combination. - Bernard Holland, The New York Times
Great American orchestra playing
I truly love the Von Karajan Berlin recording from 1976, and I think Karajan is the master representing Bruckner, however, this is an outstanding recording with an amazing maestro.
Well played, well executed beautiful ensemble work! And that's coming from a symphony double bassist with 40 years experience. Well done Haitink and Chicago. If you like this recording check out the Von Karajan and the Haitink Concertgebouw Orchestra recordings as well. If you're a true Bruckner fan you have multiple recordings of all of his symphonies already. And don't forget the motets as well.
