Daniel Barenboim has conducted many if not all of the Bruckner symphonies. The sixth in particular is a difficult symphony to approach because of the way Bruckner wrote the final movement. The approach used by Barenboim leaves the listener anticipating more when the symphony is actually over. Also, his tempos are a bit on the swift side which tends to rob the symphony of its meaning and makes the symphony sound more like redundant variations. However, the sound on this disc is great, and the Berlin Philharmonic continue their tradition of excellent playing. A great alternative is Otto Klemperer's recording on EMI and for a bargain CD, George Tinter's on Naxos

Barenboim and the BPO give us a Bruckner 6th that very well maybe the best we had since Karajan's classic account. Barenboim has clear vison and conducting, and while I dont 100% agree with the tempo of the last movement the playing is amazing as it is through the whole symphony. The BPO is the Bruckner orchestra and it proves it again in this recording. This disc should have a place in the collection of any music and Bruckner lover.

In performance there is more than one way to grab and hold the listener's attention. In an ideal world, the condcutor and orchestra would draw us in emotionally, but there's nothing wrong with thrilling virtuosity. That's what we get here in a live Bruckner Sixth that has been recorded in up-to-date sound so that the Berlin Phil. can be heard in all its glory. Barenboim, a lifelong devotee of Bruckner, tends to indulge in irritating and arbitrary shifts of tempo and phrasing. He keeps that to a minimum in this performance, and where he does swoon and carees a bit too much, he remains tasteful. When it was originally released, this CD was greeted with high praise from The Gramophone. Given the absence of really superior recordings of this work, I tend to agree.

Note: There is now a budget reissue of this CD from Teldec.

Without getting too boggled down I found there was a bit of coarseness to this performance that really was not in keeping with the majesty of this music. Not that the Berlin performance is bad but the previous Chicago recording was much more spacious and less conjested in sound then we have here...add to that the prevoious 1976 Dg release had an incredible presence with the right controls from the amp and you had a greatly underrated record.

I still find Barenboim to be far too criticized in this repetoire...he is very exciting and also makes the music move along very well.. I do reccommend others getting the record on LP of the Chicago DG performance to compare notes...

This is very fine but a bit too hard driven...
