The Best Bruckner "Romantic" Symphony
Ralph J. Steinberg | New York, NY United States | 03/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I remember fondly an electrifying and impulsive Bruckner Fourth from the Fifties with Jochum and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Happily, this remake with the Berlin Philharmonic is just as fine and benefits from modern stereo sound and of course, the Berlin Philharmonic. Jochum seems to be one of the few who can infuse real drama into this score without neglecting its pastoral lyricism. I defy anyone to be able to sit still during the famous "Hunting" Scherzo. I would be interested to know if any listeners know Jochum's earliest recording of the work on Telefunken, with the Hamburg State Philharmonic. I just purchased the Bruckner Fifth on Music and Arts with that ensemble, and I was quite overwhelmed by that performance's power and impulse, more so than Jochum's latter performance on DG. Nevertheless, even if the Fourth from that vintage should emerge, the Berlin performance will always remain special."
Simply magnificent...

"Bruckner interpretation does not get better than this. Jochum has a way of lavishing in the warmth of the sound of Bruckner's textures unlike any conductor. Another star of the record is the wonderful bass, it is alive and reverberent and the depth of sound from each orchestral choir is full bodied and rich. This is a really great orchestral record. I remember the lp had a great tone as well. Reccommended to any serious Brucknerian."
TOCANDO EL CIELO

"Que suerte que podamos en la actualidad poder gozar de la cuarta Sinfonía de Bruckner por Eugen Jochum en BIT. Es indudablemente una de las grandes interpretaciones de esta obra maestra, junto con las de Karajan (Berlín) y Barenboim (Chicago). Jochum da una concepción de gran profundidad y trascendencia, sumado a un sonido aterciopelado de la Filarmónica de Berlín. La obra de Sibelius de tan poca difusión incluida en este disco, es muy buena.Francisco J. Muñoz"
