José Luis Bermúdez
Classical Net, June 2015

There is no doubt in my mind that this is a tremendous performance. Young and the Philharmoniker Hamburg bring the 1878 version to life with a great sense of structure. The pacing and detail keep the listener engaged throughout the very lengthy performance and the sound quality is terrific, especially for a live performance. © 2015 Classical Net Read complete review

…there are two reasons why anyone interested in Bruckner should invest in this set—and I use the word “invest” deliberately; it will be an investment. Firstly, it is absolutely fascinating to compare and contrast Bruckner’s first and second thoughts on this great score. Secondly, irrespective of what edition is being played, this recording preserves, I believe, what is simply a great Bruckner performance. I hope Simone Young will go on to record the rest of the symphonies but this is surely her finest piece of advocacy to date for Bruckner and Oehms have captured it in superb, realistic sound. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
