This is the finest set of the complete Bruckner symphonies ever recorded. We've all heard the cliché that Bruckner created "cathedrals of sound" and I'm a more than a little loathe to repeat it, but here goes: to my ears, Karajan's Brucknerian cathedrals surpass all others in terms of symmetry and beauty, grace and splendor. To summarize, Karajan is the greatest Bruckner conductor of all time. I am in total awe of what Karajan achieved with this set, and I can't think of any other recorded legacy that is more important. Everything about it is compelling, and exceptional. Karajan's interpretations are magnificent and go right to the soul of this deeply moving music (and without disruptive eccentricities). And the playing of the Berlin Philharmonic has to be heard to be believed--the balance, the tone, the beautiful sonorities - it's hard to not think that this represents their finest hour(s), so to speak. The Berlin Philharmonic's playing in this set is the greatest orchestral playing I have ever heard - in any works. What an achievement for Karajan and the orchestra, and what a great gift to all of us.
