Bruckner: The Symphonies (Box Set)

Classical | 10 RAR | 2.85 GB | APE, CUE, Logs
Covers CD Date: October 11, 2005 | Philips

Haitink has long been a renowned interpreter of Bruckner, and the Concertgebouw with which he has long been associated, and who can also lay claim to a rich Bruckner tradition dating back to Mengelberg, are in possession of arguably the ideal 'Bruckner sound'. This cycle was one of Haitink's first major projects with the Concertgebouw, and in many ways it shares a common approach with the Bruckner of Van Beinum.

This box of Bruckner symphonies, recorded from 1960-72 in Holland, was rereleased in 2005. These were recorded during Haitink's halcyon days as director of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, when, in my opinion, he did his best and most reliable work in the recording studio. These performances include Bruckner's "Nulte" symphony, the so-called Symphony No. 0, and the traditional nine symphonies in varying arrangements. Haitink plays the original versions of Symphonies 0-4 and the first version of the titanic Symphony No. 8.

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
