    Best bet for Bruckner

    This is probably the best available box set of Bruckner symphonies. Eugen Jochum is regarded as somewhat of a Bruckner specialist, and he recorded the complete Bruckner symphonies twice: this set from the '50s and '60s with the Berlin Philharmonic and the Bavarian Radio symphony, and a later set with the Dresden Staatskapelle for EMI. While the performances in each set are similar, I prefer this DG Set mainly for the sound, which I find to be clearer and brighter, as opposed to a somewhat more dry and distant sound from EMI. A further complaint with the EMI set is the brass section, which comes across as strained and out of tune at times. It's a personal preference, however - sammple both if you can as, many people rate the EMI set as definitive.

    While this set is excellent as a collection and a great way to get to know the Bruckner symphonies, there is more than one way to play these symphonies (not to mention the various versions of each symphony). Jochum generally tends towards faster, more dramatic tempos. For a different view, try, for example, Wand on RCA in the 4th, and Giulini's 9th on DG.
