Bruckner: Symphony No. 7

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
The idea of arranging Bruckner's mighty and majestic "Symphony No. 7" for a chamber ensemble of nine players seems quixotic at best and perverse at worst. But when it is taken into consideration that the arrangement was made for Schoenberg's Society for the Private Performance of Music by three Schoenberg protégés in close association with their master, the idea begins to seem more reasonable.

And this splendid performance by the Linos-Ensemble proves that the idea seems not only reasonable, but inevitable and even quite natural.
