Dave Billinge
MusicWeb International, January 2012

the orchestral balance Welser-Möst achieves is excellent, giving appropriate weight to the complex lines of Bruckner’s argument. The Adagio climax…is radiant and in the finale the wonderful coda arrives with exactly the right inevitability, provoking a single too-soon shout of approval from an otherwise silent audience.

…this is a very fine Bruckner 7 and…the best produced HD video we currently have. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Robert Benson, December 2011

The conductor’s affection for this symphony is apparent in his 14-minute discussion of the work. The finale is thrilling indeed. What a pleasure it is to see and hear the famed Cleveland brass at their very best. I saw this on the Blu Ray version which offers stunning vidoagraphy William Cosel, vividly conveying the golden beauty of the venue which rightfully has been called one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world. Robert Woods of Telarc fame was executive audio producer, a guarantee of sonic excellence. This is a magnificent issue. Don’t miss it! © 2011 Read complete review
