The American Record Guide's Bruckner Overview reports that its panel was unanimous that 'The greatest (recording) of them all is the Vienna Boehm...a monumental performance unlikely ever to be surpassed...(The VPO's) warm, rich strings and dark,full, soft-edged brass are just the right sounds...The Sofiensaal was a great hall for recordings and the engineers had a lucky day.'
I don't always agree with the value judgements in the Overviews, but this is certainly the greatest recording known to me (while acknowledging my ignorance of the vast majority of the 200 (!) extant Bruckner Fourths).
