    No.1 Results:
    Trash
    19th- Barenboim CSO

    Decent
    18th- Abbado WPO
    17th- Tintner RNSO
    16th- Chailly DSOB
    15th- Jochum SKD
    14th- Young HPO
    13th- Gielen SWR SO
    12th- Skrowaczewski RSOS (1p)
    11th- Wand KRSO (2p)
    10th- Sawallisch BSO
    9th- Maazel SOdBR (3p)
    8th- Abbado LFO

    Good
    7th- Venzago TS (4p)
    6th- Haitink RCO (5p)

    5th (6p)


    Bruckner
    Symphony No.1 in C minor (1866 Linz Version)
    Cond. Georg Solti, CSO, Decca (1995)

    In short terms, this is a Karajan recording without sounding slick. The Allegro starts normal, but from the Adagio this gets grander. The Finale also ticks the boxes.
    B

    4th (7p)


    Bruckner
    Symphony No.1 in C minor (1935 Version Ed. Haas) (Live recording)
    Cond. Takashi Asahina, OPO, Jean Jean (1977/2000 Issue Edition)

    Highly reccomendable live recording, and surprisingly intense sound without many differences in the balance. No weak spot.
    B

    TOP3 (8p)


    Bruckner
    Symphony No.1 in C minor (1955 Version Ed. Nowak)
    Cond. Eugen Jochum, BPO, DG (1966/2016 Reissue Edition)

    Back to the great references of Brucknerians: Jochum achieves here a bright sound, going higher than many others. Both the Allegro and Adagio are very well taken from the Nowak edition.
    B+

    TOP2 (9p)


    Bruckner
    Symphony No.1 in C minor (1955 Version Ed. Nowak)
    Cond. Herbert Blomstedt, LGO, Querstand (2013)

    The high profile and neat sound of Blomstedt's Live performanc in Leipzig arrives in the Scherzo and lasts until the final applause. I was not amazed but this has quality.
    B+

    TOP1 (10p)


    Bruckner
    Symphony No.1 in C minor (1955 Version Ed. Nowak)
    Cond. Herbert von Karajan, BPO, DG (1982)

    Karajan's No.1 recording could be described both explosive and spectacular, reaching new highs with the Adagio's strings. A tour de force that only fails to surprise in the Scherzo and Finale.
    B+

    Jochum/DG for me. Very exciting with excellent sonics, compared to Karajan mud.

    Asahina is a great recording. He has a lovely way with Bruckner.

    Listened to van Zweden/NRPO last night. Excellent performance, and SQ to match.
