“Bruckner is one of those rare geniuses, seldom to be found in the whole of European history, whose natural destiny it is to make the supernatural real, to force the divine into the strait-jacket of our human world.”
Wilhelm Furtwängler

“Furtwängler’s Bruckner interpretations were always marked above all by the intensity of his thoroughly romantic feeling and his temperament for improvisation, and his Bruckner recordings, perhaps more than any other, provide us with an especially impressive example of his own unmistakable approach to music, which itself was inclined to be basically ‘ecstatic’, and the main characteristic of which was the aesthetic, voluptuous flow of feeling.”
Walter Abendroth
