**** - Excellent
Giuseppe Rossi - Musica magazine (Italy) - March 2014
"... This is a symphony of horns, and the horns sound wonderful. The strings are warm and dark. It’s a full sound but with plenty of detail. The conception is natural - noartifical stresses, no conductorial posing. the music simply unfolds and the climaxes simply arrive. he never underlines a point; he shapes th music very naturally so the points underline themselves and everything falls into place. This is great conducting by an architect of the podium... This is great Bruckner. The orchestra, too, seems to have come into a period of greatness. Their sound is glorious..."
