Bruckner: Symphony No. 6

London Symphony Orchestra
Sir Simon Rattle (conductor)

Bruckner’s Sixth Symphony is one of the most original of all the composer’s symphonic works. Its contrasting moods, and overarching theme moving from darkness to light, can be haunting one moment and ecstatic the next, culminating in one of the most enigmatic symphonic conclusions of the 19th century. For this recording Sir Simon Rattle conducts the Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs Urtext edition of the score.

After a second faulty disc (click at 11:50 on SACD 2.0 playback): anyone else had this problem (or anyone able to check)?

Personally I very much like Rattle's 1st and 2nd movements. In the last two movements, I feel he fails to keep me hooked.

I agree with you on the performance. I was very disappointed. I forgot it almost as soon as it ended.

I've always loved the first movement of this symphony but not so much the following movements.....irrespective of the conductor.
