What a glorious work! Here's a moving passage on YouTube (I have isolated the extract in the link that follows), a wonderful build up to a "chorale" that always knocks my socks off, a bit like struggling up a foggy mountain trail and then the sun bursts out...

I know Bruckner has many detractors, I'm always puzzled by that.
I've never understood the persistence of the detractors, either.

What is your take on Celibidache and Bruckner? (Listening to your link, now.)
