At the time of writing, this album is being offered new for about $16, including both CDs. While I have quibbles about the performance and the discussion, overall I feel the release is very satisfying and enterprising.

To comment on another review of this disc, Zander is not declaring this work to be the greatest symphony ever written. That declaration was made by William Carragan, who worked on one of the posthumous completions of the finale of Bruckner's 9th symphony. Zander considered the Bruckner 5th to be "among a handful of the masterpieces of this genre". Oddly enough, the conductor does not mention which other works made this list. What I found mildly irritating, and this was far more of a nuisance than a grievance, was how much time was spent discussing the conductor's father's time fighting for the Germans in WWI. While on the one hand I can empathize with a person finding outlets for spiritual consolation in times of extreme distress and hardship, and I am glad this symphony was his portal to a light that outshone the darkness of war, on the other hand I have not much empathy for hearing about how difficult things were for the German military. Perhaps since the conductor is speaking about his father, considerable forbearance must be made for this. Notwithstanding that, I admire the soldier's respect for this great work, solely upon examining a study score (the Schalk edition, not Haas!), never having heard the work performed. Having gotten that off my chest, the supplementary discussion CD is otherwise excellent and the cathedral blueprint on two sides is brilliant too. I would love to see more recordings like this, where the conductor walks the listener through the whole work.

Please see the reviews for the hybrid SACD release of this recording. I don't understand Telarc's marketing strategy regarding the availability of both a CD-only and a hybrid-SACD for virtually (if not exactly -- that depends upon the retailer) the same price. In a forum such as this, it often means that one of these will be listed without the recommendations given the other. Except for this marketing oddity, Zander's Bruckner 5th is a keeper!!!

After reading everywhere how marvelous this performance was, imagine my frustration of waiting more than six months and being unable to find an SACD pressing available for purchase, be it from Amazon and elsewhere where it was back-listed and expected soon.

Finally, I could take it no longer, and I bought a "normal" pressing which to my chagrin proved to be a perfectly respectable, but not extraordinary, performance of this marvelous work. For the life of me, I could not understand what had caused the critical excitement many months before....

But completely unexpected one day, the mailman showed up with a package from England: a long forgotten order of this Zander performance of Bruckner's Symphony No.5 in SACD. With very little initial excitement indeed, I put it on the player, but I was soon transported into wonderment as Bruckner's architecture clicked and came to life as never before, and I realize how important it had been to wait for SACD to bring its magic to bring the music to life.

It is nothing less than a crime to deny music lovers this seasoning to help bring some music to life.....
