Re: Bruckner 7 Eichhorn
Bear in mind that the superlative Camerata series is not all conducted by Kurt Eichhorn, who died before recording 1, 3, 4, and 6--which are conducted by Martin Sieghart. These recordings are in my opinion perhaps the overall best technically, in stereo, to be found: a nigh-on perfect marriage of concert hall acoustic (the Brucknerhaus Linz) and expert recording technique by the Japanese sound engineers from Camerata Tokyo. I would add that Eichhorn's renditions of B5 and B9, in particular, have never been bettered, and B7 is practically as good. The Guschlbauer D-Minor Symphony was an earlier recording, not originally part of the Eichhorn/Sieghart series, but added by Camerata to flesh out their set. The F-Minor was never considered.
