    A high-voltage performance with sound to match. I hope this is the beginning of a new cycle.

    Listening to this recording off the strength of Dimace's much earlier recommendation that one should start dipping ones toes into Bruckner with Wand, and symphonies no. 4 and 9. Indeed quite good, and accessible. But this man takes a damn long time to get his point across... this is pretty much what a symphony by a mature Wagner might have sounded like.

    Beethoven's Sonatas characteristic, my friend. Also here we have something the Greatest taught the next composers generations. I will explain this technic (Musikalische Erwartung it is calling. Very advanced and very difficult technic to be successfully realized) in an other post. By the way, Wagner uses an other (the opposite) technic. Pre-exposure is calling this. And it is Wagner originality. Only Rossini has also used this technic to his operas. Siegfried Wagner, in his Overtures also uses this exposure but with development. (an other way, very similar).

    ^Please do write up a post explaining this Musikalische Erwartung technique in another post when you have the time. It sounds fascinating. I am also curious to see the Rossini/Wagner connection elaborated upon.

    Maybe it deserves its own thread...?

    You give me hope! I'm in deep desperation with the Finn. I can find no satisfaction! (alles OK with the Rolling Stones... Sibelius is my problem).

    Wow. The finale of this symphony (Bruckner 4) is really awesome. Particularly the last 2 minutes.
