Yes, Bruckner can be refreshing. Witness this lively, flowing performance that never sacrifices the necessary gravitas for mere speed, but which delivers an interpretation of unusual cogency and musical logic. This is without a doubt one of the finest versions of this epic symphony available, a performance totally and miraculously without any “dead” spots. Kudos to Markus Poschner the Bruckner Orchestra of Linz, and Capriccio Records for yet another outstanding volume of this ongoing series.
