    Karajan / BPO

    Dohnanyi / Cleveland is also thrilling

    Sadly, this is one of the very few recordings he made of Bruckner that has excellent SQ. Most of the rest are in dire need of re-mastering in order to be listenable. DG made a mess of almost all of them.

    Another superb performance, listened to this afternoon, is Thielemann/MPO. It is a spacious reading, and the sonics are incredible for a CD -- no muddiness nor congestion anywhere, which is the fate of many other recordings of this symphony.

    I could hear every instrument, even in the tuttis, and the brass was magnificent. It made a huge difference in my appreciation of the music.

    Just listened to M5 with van Zweden/NRPO. Wow!!! A marvelous performance, with SQ to match. It is even better than Jochum/RCO, and matched only by Eichhorn/BRSO.

    Thielemann/MPO and Karajan/BPO are also excellent, but a bit below these two, for me.

    Just had another listen to Zweden, and my first impressions held up completely. At the very top of B5's, for me.
