'Vänskä conducts Bruckner with power and understanding and draws rich and finely nuanced playing' (Gramophone)

'The BBCSSO play splendidly for Osmo Vänskä, whose feeling for this composer seems as profound as his much-acclaimed Sibelius' (Classic FM Magazine)

'A sharp and taut reading … Vänskä captures the spaciousness of Bruckner’s building blocks. Good sound and ripe playing' (The Scotsman)

'This is one of the best Bruckner-symphony recordings I have ever heard … a searing, electrically charged performance. Quite simply, it is stunning … one of the most exciting Bruckner performances on disc—and certainly the best Third I have ever heard. This is one that you simply have to have. Recommended with all the breath in my lungs … it has been a pleasure to review, and now to recommend' (Fanfare, USA)
