    I'll have to look into some of his other recordings.

    Three cycles I have, all of which have great points:

    Bruckner jochum.jpg

    Bruckner tint.jpg

    To these I would add Karajan's EMI 4 and 7 and his late DG 7 and 8

    Also Dohnanyi's 5 and 9

    for complete sets - try

    Solti/CSO/Decca
    Barenboim [I]/ with Chicago/DG

    both terrific....."knock your socks off" stuff...

    Walter/ColSO - #4, 7, 9 - essential, in my book..

    yes, Bruckner very big on the tension/release format...that's one of the things I like about Solti - he excelled at building the big, long line, the rising tension, and the orgasmic climax...ie - Sym #7/II, one of the greatest Adagios - Solti brings this off amazingly, hugely powerful climax....he doesn't let things lag either, or become to choppy or episodic - which is a real danger with Bruckner - slow, draggy, and chopped up...no thanx...
