C: Matacic, Lovro Von (1899-1985)
O: Philharmonic Orchestra of London
Matacic Notes: One of the greatest Bruckner conductors besides Asahina, Knappertsbusch and Schuricht. Other Matacic Bruckner symphony recordings are: 4 (Philharmonic Orchestra of London 1995 Testament B000003XIW), 5 (with Orchestr Ceská Filharmonie 2007 Supraphon B000N6UGOQ and with Orchestre National de France Valois B0007DDR14), 7 (Czech PO 2004 Supraphon B0002JP5A4), 8 ( Japanese label Co Co 78551 Nippon Columbia Japan, B000M1EZYY) and 9 (VPO Tower Records / Universal Japan B000V8WQOV and Czech PO 2006 Supraphon B000F11Q8M). I strongly recommend the 5th with Orchestre National de France.

Schuricht Notes: In addition to Asahina, Knappertsbusch and Matacic, he is one of the greatest Bruckner conductors. I highly recommend his 7th recorded in September, 1964 with Hague Symphony Orchestra.

**C: Tintner, Georg (1917-1999)
O: Royal Scottish National Orchestra
R: Henry Wood Hall, Glasgow, Scotland 08/27-08/28/98

V: 1873 Original version, ed. Nowak
Webpage: Naxos http://www.naxos.com
Tintner Notes: Part of Complete (0-9) Bruckner symphony recordings . Like Eliahu Inbal, Tintner is one of only a few conductors who created the Bruckner recording based on the original. The Original version of the eighth is very different from the more frequently played Haas and Nowak versions. For example, in the first movement, brilliant extra 30 bars of Fortissimo is added in the Coda of the original and the ending of the fourth movement unison is missing in the original. Compare Titner, Inbal with others.
