Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Georg Tintner opts for the earliest version of the Symphony No. 1. The principal differences here are the finale, which brings angular writing and orchestration that is more radical than in the revisions. Tintner in his dedicated performance, with refined playing from the Scottish orchestra, amply justifies his choice, powerfully bringing out the bald originality of the writing. The generous makeweight also offers a rare text, a version of the slow movement of Symphony No. 3, which was composed in 1876. Again the intensity and refinement of the performance sustain the expansiveness compellingly. Clear, atmospheric sound, at once transparent and weighty in climaxes.

Review By William W. Starr,The State,March 2001

"The final two releases from this huge recording project are now available, and they continue to document performances of genuine stature. Tintner is a very understanding conductor of Bruckner, and he secures committed performances from the Scottish orchestra for these seldom-heard pieces­KThe Scottish orchestra plays responsively, and Tintner shows that he knows the craggy corners of Bruckner's writing in ways that elude most conductors. This recording-indeed, Tintner's entire Bruckner cycle-is highly recommended, not to mention that it comes at a low price."
