Comment: This is a previously-owned 2-CD set with all facets of the product intact (jacket, hinged-case and artwork). The discs show minimal surface-wear and play through perfectly (have been double-checked), but both have initials of ownership written on them (do not affect play).

Well - Günter Wand simply is missing in the musical world of today, and he surely cannot be replaced. Having lived in Hamburg (or close by) in the last years I had the great pleassure to listen to almost all concerts of this master live (i.e. sitting in the concert hall), including the one recorded here. For the "big B's" - Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner - you cannot find better recordings than Wand's. The NDR SO with Wand grows probably to one of the world's best orchestras. The performances were allways fascinating masterpieces. Wand is the master of the big picture, the context within the whole piece and the movements themselfs - and the orchestra followed him, sometimes even only on a little movement with his forefinger...
Listening to his recordings - and particularly to this one - I still feel the loss to myself personally due to the death of this big old man, which speeks for the recording itself. Technically the recording is excellent, since it is usually the same bunch of NDR techincians who recorded the Wand performances.
Taken together you cannot go better than with this recording (this is true for all of his recordings by the way...).

With all due respect to the previous reviewer, jgri, who raves about this performance/recording, I'm of a very different opinion. To my ears, this is a performance that I suspect not even fans of Gunter Wand will consider an important addition to the Wand/B4 discography--his Berlin Philharmonic performance of the 4th is light years ahead of this one. Sadly, it's a not very good performance of a wonderful piece of music that Wand has done much better elsewhere, and which loves Bruckner's 4th to its death. This feels like an interminable, nearly lifeless performance that only comes alive intermittently (end of the second movement, parts of the fourth). Worse than that, some of the playing of the orchestra (trumpets out of tune in the trio of the 3rd movement, brass in the fourth movement) is substandard, and more than that, the NDR Orchestra sounds in this performance as if they're not close to world-class. At their best, the orchestra plays functionally, but you can hear a world of difference between the sound this orchestra produces and the top-rank ones like the VPO, Concertgebouw, Dresden, and of course the BPO during the Karajan years. I'm also not the biggest fan of Gunter Wand to start with, and sadly, he does not make a convincing case for his glacial (and nearly inert) reading of this symphony. Wand unfortunately is not in the same talent league as Celibidache, who showed in his unique reading of the 4th with the Munich Philharmonic on EMI that it's possible to pull off such ridiculously slow speeds.Read more ›
