5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent,, but from Barenboim's point of view February 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Barenboim can be either an inspired conductor (the 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th here) or an overly cautious one (the first three symphonies in particular). This set was recorded mostly live between 1991 and 1996 in the Berlin Philharmonic's home concert hall and in the Hamburg Sachspielhaus auditorium, except for the 4th and 7th, which were recorded in the same halls without an audience. One would think Barenboim would be considerably more inspired with an audience than without, and while he is truly inspired in all of the 8th and 9th and much of the 5th (especially the scherzo), his generally excellent performance of the 7th in particular gives lie to that premise.

I would describe Barenboim's performances as both moving and safe. "Moving" in that Bruckner's spiritual dimension is given its due, everything is held in balance, and the playing of the Berlin Philharmonic is either very good or (particularly in the 9th) truly inspired. The 9th in particular seems to me one of the great performances on disc, with a brilliant and light-footed second movement and a third movement where both the gates of heaven and the jaws of human despair open wide, the first celestial and the second truly frightening. "Safe" in that Barenboim gets all the notes and phrasings in the right place, and generally his harmonic approach to symphonic structure stands him well here. This is not the either "adventurous" or "willfully wrong-headed" (depending on your point of view) Barenboim of the Chicago Symphony Bruckner series. Barenboim neither gets extremely original nor does he "mail it in" on any of the symphonies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bruckner since Jochum's! February 14, 2008
Format:Audio CD
These recordings are awesome! I'm deeply impressed not only for the sound but for the playing and interpretation as well!

They are all live except #4 & #7 which are studio.

I know Barenboim in often hit and miss in conducting and piano playing but I would have to say Barenboim hit this one really on the money!

He has a great sense of structure and beauty in these recordings. They breathe and have wonderful breadth. They even include the spiritual dimension, which is very important in Bruckner.

It's the best Bruckner I've heard since Jochum's EMI and Karajan's DG!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Magnificent Recordings!! December 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Other symphonies in this set are outstanding in every way, but the highlight must be absolutely magnificent account of 7,8 & 9th. Barenboim's strength is the way he generates maximum degree of depth and intensity without resorting to distortion and exaggeration. He lets music flow as naturally as possible and speak for itself. Every movement thoughtfully paced, sensitively crafted, every climax as overwhelming as possible. These are no doubt the finest Bruckner recordings in decades.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Curate's Egg, Danny-style. January 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD
What a mixed bag this is! If Barenboim was hoping to incarnate - not imitate - his lodestar of Furtwangler, the embodiment is fitful at best.

On the Credit side of the ledger, the performance of the Ninth is close to being the best on the market - what a performance and the Berlin Phil sound like the days of yore. Richard Osborne, who reviews Bruckner performances for the Gramophone, lauded it as the front-runner and he is no mean critic. 5 / 5

The Fifth is a fast and punchy performance which means that the slow movement is less moving than others - but the last movement is incandescence itself and second to none - again, the Berlin Phil plays like gods. 4 /5

The First Symphony is right on the money and highly enjoyable. 4/ 5

On the other side of the ledger 3 & 4 are good concert performances and no more. They are superlatively played and well recorded - but in each instance, Barenboim fails to impart a unified view of the music. Both performances avoid being episodic - a cardinal error in Bruckner - but they lack an overarching 'vision made flesh'. At no point in either of them does one detect an immolatory act of consummation. Both 3 / 5 (and this is being somewhat unfair to the performance of the Third, which is very listenable).

The Seventh Symphony makes all the right gestures but fails to lodge in the memory - magic, there ain't. The first movement is nearly as slow as the Maazel / BPO performance from the late 1980s and it is just as tensionless. 2 / 5

The Sixth Symphony is the nadir of this cycle - it is clearly the end-product of multiple edits taken from a range of performances (it is not a patch on the Karajan, for all its flaws, or the Stein).
