Guest More than 1 year ago
I had become so accustomed to associating Nikolaus Harnoncourt with Bach -- specifically the complete cantatas -- that I was skeptical when he began recording classical and romantic era composers (and even when he released Handel oratorios). Of the more than 30 recordings of the Bruckner 5th I own -- on LP and CD -- this is easily the finest. The Vienna Philharmonic is in top form -- and, of course, playing a composer it knows well. The sound is as good as I've heard in any work on any label. Best of all is Harnoncourt. While his fidelity to the written score has sometimes appeared pedantic, or prissy, here it works almost to perfection. Nothing is added or cut and nothing changed. The glorious second movement, with its excruciatingly beautiful chorale theme, may be the finest Bruckner moment ever put on disk. (I do not exclude Furtwangler, and not because of his recordings' ancient sound.) My sole reservation is that tempi in the scherzo -- though not the trio -- sections are rushed.
