Herbert von Karajan's last two Bruckner recordings (this one and his recording of the 8th with the same orchestra) are almost universally considered to be the best performances of the 7th and 8th symphonies among hardcore Brucknerians(like myself) and among other listeners. The Vienna Philharmonic play with their usual radiance. Karajan's tempi are always well judged, taking the Adagio at an ideal tempo, clocking in at a somewhat slower then normal 23:15. The climaxes are all very impressively built(just listen to the end of the first and last movement!). The sound quality is clear and spacious. Though not the last word on Bruckner's 7th(Skrowaczewski, Chailly, and Jochum all have something to say), if you are looking to buy just a single performance, most definately get this one. It is my favorite out of my many recordings.
