The so-called “Study Symphony”, sometimes known as Symphony No. 00, dates from six years previously and understandably contains far fewer of the Brucknerian trademarks his aficionados prize; indeed some might concur with the verdict of Bruckner’s teacher Otto Kitzler who adjudged it to be “uninspired”, a criticism somewhat at odds with the appreciative and appreciable notes from Dr Rainer Boss. My colleague Michael Cookson, who reviewed this disc last March, also summons up rather more enthusiasm for it than I feel inclined to express but I am in full agreement that it could hardly be given better advocacy than it receives here from Schaller and the excellent Philharmonie Festiva, who have already proved their prowess in their series of recordings of the complete Bruckner symphonies on Profil.
