I still think the Jochum set on EMI with the Dresden orchestra is tops, but recently I discovered this set below, and it's really special (and not that expensive!) Check out the contents, there are two completed Ninths, if you're interested!

In the meantime keep enjoying. PS I don't get the Celibidache craze, hope you have more luck!

Many thanks for alerting me to this new boxset, I ordered it from JPC.de in a wink!

To the OP: not to repeat the whole discussion from some other thread, but Jochum's boxset is not the most recommended way into Bruckner in my humble opinion. There is no ideal boxset, you might want to approach different symphonies from different recordings/conductors, but no matter what you do, you MUST listen to Carlo Maria Guilini's recording of Bruckner's Ninth. This is a desert island material.
