Gramophone Magazine

December 2008

“The latest taping is drawn from his final series of concerts with the Vienna Philharmonic and it's profoundly impressive. Bernstein directed only two Bruckner symphonies in his maturity but, with his own health declining fast, he seems to identify with the unfinished Ninth as never before. The Franck from 1981 is at the opposite pole from the fleet-footed Gallic conception associated with Pierre Monteux. The Paris audience goes mad for the reading, unsurprising given the sheer intensity achieved, even if the work's structure falls apart.”
