Bruckner himself is said to have called it his "petulant daughter. This is the only Blomstedt recording of the piece. Although it is an early work, its sound reveals Bruckner's own unique way of speaking, and it can be said to be a work that foreshadows the great achievements of his later years. The second piece is also an early work, but it is already overflowing with Bruckner's personality. Blomstedt's conducting is rich in detail and expressive. The third symphony is nicknamed the "Wagner Symphony" because it was dedicated to Wagner. However, the Vienna Philharmonic refused to perform the premiere in 1874, so the first revision of the work was made, and the third draft is still in existence. Blomstedt focuses on the 1873 first draft version, which has been under review since the middle of the 20th century. The Fourth Symphony is the most performed of Bruckner's symphonies. It is full of beautiful melodies, including the horns at the beginning. Blomstedt also recorded this work twice. No. 5 represents a difficult period in Bruckner's life. This performance shows Blomstedt's more structured appeal, with a composition of exquisite counterpoint that demonstrates his abilities as a composer and a sacred chorale that expresses Bruckner's own deep religious beliefs. Only the second and third movements of No. 6 were performed publicly earlier. Despite the success of the partial premiere, however, the complete work was not premiered until after Bruckner's death. On the other hand, No. 7 was premiered in Leipzig in December 1884. The premiere was a great success, and this success brought Bruckner further fame as a composer. With its beautiful melody and colorful orchestration, this work is often performed even today. This performance brings out the natural sound from the orchestra, and is a performance of incomparable beauty. The Eighth is the last symphony Bruckner completed and is highly regarded as his masterpiece. The length of the piece, its diverse developments, and its overwhelming climax surpass his previous works in every sense. Bruckner's strong personality gives the work an abundance of energy, and Blomstedt's unfathomable energy can be felt in this performance. Finally, the unfinished masterpiece, No. 9.The composer died in 1896, leaving the last movement unfinished. In this recording, Blomstedt uses the original version revised by Benjamin-Gunnar Kohls.
