I could go on about the technical details of Boulez's Eighth, but because the pristine, brilliant and meticulous conductor exacted such glorious sounds from the orchestra, I want only to say that I wept most of the way through. I've all of Bruckner, but somehow, Boulez' treatment of this particular symphony goes way beyond words. If you have empathy for the extraordinarily complicated composer, buy it. NOW. But be prepared for an emotional journey through the intellectual approach of Boulez. Yes - a contradiction - but isn't that what Bruckner was expressing?Was this review helpful?
