A friend of mine recently introduced me to the symphonies of Anton Bruckner, and I have been quite impressed. I particularly like the Naxos Georg Tintner cd's: great performances and great sound - #8 is especially good. There's also a great version of #7 on Teldec, with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, a very nice recording.

Anyone have any recommendations for other great Bruckner recordings out there?

I only have one Bruckner album - Bruckner's Symphony # 4 (Romantic) by the Vienna Philharmonic - the late Karl Bohm conducting, on London/Decca. It's an older recording - 1973, so there's a bit of hiss, but it's a stirring performance nonetheless. I threw it on the SB3 while I typed this - the beauty of having all music digitized and ready to play.

I've had these CDs for years now, and always thought they were good:

#4 Chicago Symphony Orchestra / Sir George Solti (Decca 1983)
#7 Radio Symphonie Orchester Berlin / Riccardo Chailly (Decca 1985)
#8 Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam / Bernard Haitink (Philips 1981)
#9 Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam / Bernard Haitink (Philips 1981)
