Reviews

‘The Decca engineers have now certainly got the measure of Royce Hall, Los Angeles, with rich reverberation wrapping round the bald Brucknerian textures […] I have never before known this music sound so like Wagner. […] In all four movements Mehta with his suave style is a degree more extrovert [than the versions by Kertesz and Haitink]’ (Bruckner) Gramophone
