Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

In a moving note Georg Tintner passionately argues the case for Bruckner’s original (1887) version of No. 8, fresh and spontaneous. The result is an intense, keenly concentrated reading, with total dedication in the playing which rises to supreme heights in the long Adagio slow movement, where the refined pianissimo playing of the Irish orchestra is magically caught by the Naxos engineers. Even for those with rival versions, this makes a very necessary recommendation, particularly when the two-disc package brings so generous and revealing a coupling as the D minor Symphonie (Die Hullte) in a very good performance. Tintner powerfully brings out the Brucknerian qualities in embryo, and again he is served very well by the Irish orchestra.



Review By Edward Dorall,,New Straits Times (Malaysia),October 2001

"NAXOS was fortunate to have had Georg Tintner record the complete cycle of Bruckner's symphonies for its increasingly prestigious CD company.

This is actually Bruckner's second symphony, withdrawn by the composer in dismay and numbered as O when its first conductor couldn't identify the opening movement's first subject. Today, despite some gauche themes and passages, it is considered by most Brucknerites to be a more advanced composition than Symphony No. 1 as well as the archetype of the Bruckner symphony, varied eight times (16 if we consider revisions) in Symphonies 2 to 9.

Review By Terry Barfoot,MusicWeb International,June 2000

To record the complete Bruckner symphonies is a major undertaking, not to be taken lightly by any of those involved: conductor, orchestra, recording engineers, record company. Therefore it needs to be said at the outset that Naxos has achieved a triumph, nothing less. The only tragedy is that the conductor, Georg Tintner, is no longer alive to witness its full acknowledgement.
