Rollover to Zoom 



Conductor Hans Knappertsbusch has always aroused controversy over his Bruckner performances due to his perceived lassitude of tempo and allegiance to first-published editions. Tempo flexibility, dynamic contouring, and rhetorical gesture are part and parcel of Bruckner;s music as promulgated in those editions. This historic recording of Knappertsbusch directing the Vienna Philharmonic displays just that approach to Brucknerian rubato in the Eighth and Ninth Symphonies. A jewel in history, waiting to be discovered.
