Symphony No. 7: Celibidache / Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra / Euroarts DVDOf all the Celibidache Bruckner recordings (and there are many), this is the most legendary. First of all the March 31, 1992 event was special in itself in that it marked the conductor's first performance with the orchestra since soon after WWII. But then the recording itself has its own history. Soon after the performance, Sony released this recording on VHS and Laserdisc. But then legel issues cropped up and the recording was quickly withdrawn and unsold stock was pulled back. Subsequently, copies of the recording became instant collectors items with all the human nonsense that is usually associated with such rarities. Copies have been floating around - either from the LD or from a European TV broadcast, but now it is finally commercially available.
