Mehta's Bruckner 8 in the Digital Concert Hall

There are 13 Bruckner performances in the back catalog of the Berlin Philharmonic's Digital Concert Hall, including an excellent Bruckner 8 from Zubin Mehta recorded on 13 March 2012. This is a welcome addition to Mehta's slender Bruckner discography. He has a deep understanding of Bruckner and this performance has both momentum and structure. Here is a short sampler. The full performance requires a ticket. I recommend a season pass, which gives access to the coming season as well as to a large and ever-expanding back list
