Synopsis

Amazon.com
The 1943 Bruckner is incomplete, its first movement missing. And the Brahms symphonic movement is all that remains of a 1945 performance of the work. In both cases, the missing movements were either never recorded or they've disappeared. That said, this is the Furtwängler Bruckner recording I'd keep if I could only have one. The slow movement is far superior to any ever made in feeling and commitment, almost unbearable in its power; the rest is on the same exalted level. Wilhelm Furtwängler's wartime concert recordings are all extraordinary for the pain and rage they display, and this one is a hymn to a civilization profaned and defiled by barbarism. Transfers are fine, with more presence than found on many current recordings. --Dan Davis

"I am familiar with many Bruckner 6ths, and this one is my favorite, even though the sound is marginal and the whole first movement is missing. He gets Bruckner! A dramatic Brahms 1st symphony first movement is also included (but obviously not as a replacement for the Bruckner first movement.)"
