The previous review is a little misleading
11/02/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First of all, the recording accurately captures the acoustical environment in the Great Hall of the Concertgebouw. Andrew Cornall is presently one of Decca's finest producers and his studio recordings have never been as bad as the best Karajan got with DG in his digital years. Anyone who has seen a score of any version of Bruckner 9 knows that there is no Bass drum part. In fact, there is no Bass drum part in any of Bruckner's symphonies. Chailly deserves more credit for this recording. True, his performance does not eclipse Jochum, Walter, or possibly even Blomstedt on the same label, but he is the youngest of these conductors. The brass is not as dominant as the Karajan or Solti versions, but the acoustic counteracts the lack of darkness in the brass section. It is typical that people think there is only one approach to Bruckner. I think the Concertgebouw setting is very appropriate for this music and Chailly deserves more recognition."
