    Just listened to Thielemann/SKD. Excellent sound, well played, but lacking that certain something that Celibidache/MPO/Sony and Jochum/RCO/Japan express so well. His interpretation did not plumb the depths nor soar to the heights of those two.

    Didn't see any mention of the Eichhorn series with "hometown" orchestra, the 7th shown is available individually from Amazon USA sellers under $10, lots of hype about this but actually pretty much lives up to the reputation capturing that elusive religious reverence to a great degree, very good spacious sound..........

    I like this so much I am tempted to make a purchase from HMV Japan of the entire Eichhorn set, insanely expensive from Amazon USA sellers

    Spotify has entire Eichhorn boxset available for streaming........

    Eichhorn's B5 is easily at least equal to the very best of the recordings I have heard of that symphony (Jochum/CGO, Karajan/BPO). Will look for the set from Japan. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Just listened to B7 with van Zweden/NRPO. It was a good performance and recording, but in no way matches Celibidache/MPO/Sony, or Jochum/RCO/Tokyo.

    I noticed that the import Celi Sony selected symphonies boxset are SACD format, but are they also different performances than older main boxset from EMI? (the Japan order maybe growing)




    BTW my Zweden boxset from Presto expected any day now.......

    All are different than the EMI box. 7 and 8 are performances at Suntory Hall in Japan, 4 at the Musikverein in Vienna, and 6 in Munich in Nov. 1991.

    The SQ is wonderful, and 4, 7, and 8 are much better performances. 6 is about the same as the one from EMI.

    Just ordered the set from HMV Japan. B5 here is a different recording from the one I have. That one is with the BRSO, and it is incredible, as I wrote in an earlier post. But I imagine this one might be even better!

    Thanks again for the heads-up.

    Just listened to B7 with Thielemann/SKD. Wow, what a performance, and recording! It is definitely equal to the best I have heard.

    I hope Profil will issue CD (or even better, SACD) versions of his other Bruckner symphonies with SKD that at the moment are only available on blu-ray or dvd (4, 5, 6, and 9). The only other one available is an SACD of B8.

    Sounds like you prefer the Thielemann 7th over the Zweden 7th.....if one must make choices

    I just received my Thielemann 7th and gave a listen today, a glorious powerful rendition with exceptional sound quality, the brass are beautifully rendered creating towering crescendo peaks glistening like stars, a moving experience agree one of the top tier

    My Zweden boxset has arrived so more fun ahead......

    Thielemann is somewhat above Zweden in the 7th, for me, and on a par with Celibidache/MPO/Sony. His reading is more spacious, and the orchestra is better than the Netherlanders. But both are excellent.

    Your description of the recording is wonderful! And I look forward to your views on the Zweden box. I hope you enjoy it!
