Re: Last place among over 200 Bruckner 4ths?
Obviously I haven't heard every Bruckner 4 available, Martin, and for all I know there might be far worse, but I have heard a good few and I was indeed disappointed by Luisi's. I tried not to be unkind, by acknowledging his achievement elsewhere, but maybe in addition to his not having a good day, he had the wrong orchestra and venue, and Bruckner simply isn't his bag; few conductors excel in everything. Of course, others might disagree with me, as although I think I know my Bruckner and am accepting of a range of interpretative stances, but I guess I have by now some fixed ideas about how I want to hear him played - and do note, I say that this is "the least satisfactory recording of this symphony in my experience" not of the 200 in existence.
