Description du produit
The music of Anton Bruckner has always been a favourite of conductor Zubin Mehta. This live performance of the much-loved Symphony No.8, from the Charles Bronfman Auditorium, December 2013, in the Nowak edition finds both conductor and orchestra on top form.

Moreover, it is quite inappropriate to compare Mehta to, say, Gunter Wand, and if you look at Mehta from the view of Wand, than I am sorry to say that you are biased. They approached the same piece of work from two different angles, or even contradictory standpoints. From all the conductors that you've cited, most of them are on the "heavy-handed-slower side": Wand, Guilini, Furtwangler... I'm surprised that you didn't mention Celibindache, who pushed the "time and space concept" to the extreme. On the other hand, you can also play Bruckner fast and somewhat lighter, that's what Mehta did in this disc, as he did in the 70's and 80's (I have both versions). Barenboim and Welser-Most also adopted a similar approach, but by no means as radical as Mehta. Yes, Mehta's approach to Bruckner 8 is radical, I'd say, and this one is by no means his most radical performance. Get his 70's recording, and you will know what I mean. If you feel that Mehta is too rush, then he is not your cup of tea. It is a matter of taste.
The sound quality is not bad, but not very good either. The sound quality is not perfect. I have his Mahler 7, too, and it suffers from the same problem. It's live recording though, I tend to accept it. If you are sure that a fast Bruckner does not please your ears, don't buy it; but if you are kind of tired with the "conventional" approach and want something different, give it a try.
So what was wrong with the Mehta/IPO live performance of Bruckner's 8th I heard? Really, it was so awful that I'd rather not get into the details because then I'd have to relive it. I never felt at any point in the performance that either the players or the conductor were "inside the music." In fact I wondered, do they have any idea what this music is all about? Mehta's interpretation just ran roughshod over the work. It was as if he really didn't understand how the work all fits together, because he just rammed distinct sections into one another (it felt at times like a traffic pile-up!). There was no emotional involvement in the performance whatsoever. There was no sense of space. There was no sense of spirituality in the performance at all. Not only was the performance earthbound, honestly, it felt like it was six feet under. It was egregiously awful. And sad to say (because I've heard so many good things said about the IPO), the IPO's playing the evening I heard them made it clear they were securely in the third-tier as an orchestra (for comparison purposes, I'd rate the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra--an impressive regional orchestra--much higher).
There are many outstanding performances of Bruckner's 8th available, including but not limited to: Karajan's valedictory recording with the Vienna Philharmonic just before he died (Bruckner: Symphony No. 8), Furtwangler's incendiary 1944 wartime performance with the Vienna Philharmonic (Furtwangler Conducts Bruckner: Symphony No. 8 (10 /17 /44 recording)), Gunter Wand's Lubeck Cathedral live performance (Bruckner: Symphony No. 8), Carlo Maria Giulini's performance with the Vienna Philharmonic (which, while a great performance, unfortunately uses the truncated Nowak edition) (Bruckner: Symphonie No 8), Blomstedt's live B8 with the Gewandhaus Leipzig Orchestra, which was his final concert as Music Director of the orchestra and definitely comes with a special "sense of occasion" (Bruckner: Symphony No 8), and Knappertsbusch's recording with the Munich Philharmonic (Bruckner: Symphony 8 / Wagner: Siegfried Idyll).
Those interested in obtaining a first-rate recording of Bruckner's magnificent 8th symphony would be wise to look elsewhere.
