The new recording under Giuseppe Sinopoli is a thing to treasure. Here is music-making of tact and sensibility, free of all taint of bombast
or saccharine self-pity, a lament sufficient unto itself that can only serve, surely, to help purify and heal. (About) this Dresden account of
Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony... I have never heard the work more lucidly recorded, more clearly played or more exactly conducted than it is
here. It is Sinopoli’s amazingly exact calibration of dynamics and dynamic levels that the extraordinarily precise realization of this by the Dresden players. They are great performances, summa cum laude, a term of approbation the new Dresden performances of Strauss and Bruckner also richly deserve.
