I'll be controversial here and plump for Tintner because he records an original version of the symphony which at once makes the who thing a bit fresher with new ideas missing from the normally played revisions. I've always thought the finale of this piece is slightly unsatisfactory compared to the tight and compelling first movement and it's never been among my top favourites although all the Bruckner symphonies -- at least from no. 2 onwards, are great. A few years ago, a Japanese friend introduced me to Takashi Asahina and several of his versions -- including no. 5 and 8 if I remember correctly certainly knocked me out. A crying shame that they were never for sale in the West.
