    I couldn’t (and don’t need to) say which is best - it would be very odd to claim to know that and unless i had heard them all how do I know which is best? I don’t even have a favourite amongst the Karajan’s studio 8ths! I will however pick out some interesting ones:

    No 1 - Abbado VPO - though Oramo conducts this work very well
    No 2 - Stan S. - Oehms
    No 3 - Sinopoli DG
    No 4 - terrible symphony - don’t bother
    No 5 - Celibadache Berlin Phil - DVD
    No 6 - BBCPO/Juanjo Mena - Proms - on YouTube
    No 7 - Jochum, 1952
    No 8 - Boulez
    No 9 - Currentzis (if it’s still on YouTube)

    INCISIVE comments, Brahmsianhorn, and thanks for them! ... esp. about what WF and his Berlin Phil members could achieve, back in 1944. I still have a WF reissue, from the Furtwangler Society, itself - SWF 041 - of the Bruckner 9th, alone. The sound is probably that is the best that could be achieved, even considering a limited edition of the sort, that you have, in an earlier post. Obviously, with FURTWANGLER and those reissues, of ANY type, we're working with a source material that has certain limitations, sonically, and even in the basic interpretations, themselves. Almost no one would suggest that WF was the "ne plus ultra" in every of his, many interpretations, even in Mr. Bruckner. Geez, I even regard some of the Jascha Horenstein interpretations, of certain Symphonies, as truly VALUABLE ... and anyone can name their, own favorites ... of the roster of "virtual unknowns", so to speak, in Bruckner and else wise. Anyway, thanks again, and all the best!

    Interesting pick of Currentzis' 9th. I think the first movement is surprisingly expansive and the scherzo remarkably safe by his high standard, though very good as they are; while the slow movement is a lot more interesting because of its disturbing undercurrents; but the most eye-opening thing is playing Ligeti's Lontano immediately after the slow movement (as a finale?), which stimulates imagination. Conservatives might frown, critics might have things to write, but the audience obviously loved it.

    The whole concert is available on SWR's website: https://www.swr.de/swrclassic/sympho...e-swr-148.html

    BTW, I think the Boulez 8th on DG is wonderful.

    Just did my first active listening to Bruckner's 4th (Wand). I've had the various movements come up on random play, but I simply never bothered to really pay attention

    Did he compose this during Oktoberfest? 'Cause it seems like some sort of inside joke. Sort of like an homage to Wellington's Victory or something.

    It's a recording of Wand with the Cologne Radio Symphony Orchestra
