Thrilling account of 1877 version.
Music Man | Santa Monica, CA USA | 05/12/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Bruckner wrote 3 versions of this symphony (in 1883, in 1877, and finally in 1889. There is a FOURTH version of the 2nd movement from 1876. All versions, including the 1876 version of the 2nd movement, have been recorded.) The 1877 is a facinating combination of elements from the 1883 original and 1889 final thoughts with a few of its own. Sir Georg Solti and the CSO give a blazing, dramatic reading with tempos on the brisk side. The playing is of the highest order, but the first chair work is beyond that especially, in the winds and brass - Sublime!"
Bruckner: Symphony No. 3

"a fine performance by Solti. However, it is not the version that I am currently playing (apparently Bruckner made 5 revisions!), and it would have been helpful to know which version was recorded."
