In my 56 years I have heard about every recording of this symphony that his been available in the US, starting with the Swoboda-conducted lp on Westminster back in the 50s. Keilberth/Berlin, Stein/VPO, Klemperer/Amsterdam and New Philharmonia have been the highlights for me. I rate this recording among them. I find it rhythmically alert in the 1st movement, and for once the finale has purpose and direction as well as drive and energy. I also think the coda of the first movt. -- one of Bruckner's most remarkable -- is perhaps the finest here of any recording I now own or can remember.
Perhaps I just find myself in tune with Tinter's approach. I now own the complete set, and value it as highly as Jochum's EMI set, and not only for offering alternate ecitions of the scores. That, I believe, says it all.

This is a surprisingly good performance of the 6th symphony by the NZSO, and a testament to the great artistry of Georg Tintner. Bruckner on many occasions modified the scores of his symphonies, often against his will. The Sixth is one of the luckiest in the sense that it has never undergone any wholesale alteration by Bruckner. It is, however, also one of the unluckiest of all Bruckner's symphonies for it frequently receives astonishingly poor interpretations.
The first movement starts with a simple yet difficult marking - `Majestoso'. Bruckner went through an untiring effort to make sure that despite the palpable energy that permeates the entire movement, the music should be majestic in nature. Unfortunately, the cautiously skeletal markings are often blatantly ignored by many conductors who add numerous flashy and unnecessary tricks in their performances, leading ultimately to this movement sounding more Beethovenian than Brucknerian. Under the stoic and sensitive guidance of Tintner, the austere majesty of the work emerges with humbling beauty. The tempi are naturally paced, and the NZSO responds with an unerring accuracy that puts many world-class orchestral powerhouses to shame. The second movement of the symphony is perhaps one of the most heart-wrenching human utterances ever written. The poignant beauty of the movement makes it especially vulnerable to over-dramatization, as exemplified by the otherwise extremely fine Celibidache's rendition on EMI. The movement begins and ends with a heartrending oboe solo. It brings an untold story from the distance, and it takes with it the present despair to the distance.

05-01-2014 The 6th of Anton Bruckner is an under appreciated and under played work that still hasn't gotten it's day in the dun, but therer are, recently, I have noticed more concert hall performances in the States and abroad, which is good news. This wonder work sits between the composer's 5th, his first attempt at the large, epic canvas he would begin to pperfect when he passed away, and the magnificent 7th, the first of those BIG Symphonies. This "squeeze play'" hasn't been kind to the composer, who created, in this A Major brilliant sounding 1 hour piece, an upbeat and sunny opening movement, a very moving and devotional adagio, a rousing scherzo an a good, and intrelligent finale.
Come to think of it, the Bruckner 6th is a better Symphony than even I, a devoted and rabid Brucknerian, thought it was, as I drag it out to hear only a few times each year. Perhaps I should increase that, as I think I will. Tintner recorded this work around August 1, 1995 and it runs for 58:27, and the best part is the gorgeous Adagio of nearlt 19 minutes. But, as for the beginning movement, it is a plesently paced Maestoso, played as such, majestically and respectfully by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, their lone appearance in this Naxos cycle, overall a splendid project and one of artistic merit for a "minor" label. Since then, Naxos has stepped up nicely with recordings by the interesting and dynamic young American conductress, Marin Alsop nd the electrifying younger Russian, Vasily Petenko in his stunning Shostakovich traversal. Two BIG feathers in the Naxos cap, and this listener sits up excitedly, awaiting Naxos's next sorrey into the recording studio, hopefully some SaACD's or at least some "live" readings, from more up and coming podium leaders.

Tintner's vision of the Bruckner 6th is wonderful. His pacing is perfect, his control of climaxes is impressive, and he understands the complex architecture of this wonderful work.
Having said that, the New Zealand Symphony, while possessing a lovely string tone and good wind and brass, really can't give Tintner everything he asks for. Disturbingly, the strings, especially the violins, have frequent mishaps that often seem to mar the phrasing, especially at the end of long phrases. In light of this, unless you are understandably a huge Tintner fan, the sixth to get on a budget label is Skrowaczewski with the wonderful Saarbrucken forces on Arte Nova. Both conductors have similar takes on the music, but Skrowaczewski has the better orchestra, and sometimes he holds the tension a little better, too.
The engineering is admirable.
