Recommendation Bruckner performance/recording
Romy,

If I want to step into Bruckner music, what would be your recommendation for choosing a good performance and recording?

Thanks in advance,

Arno

A way to start with Bruckner.
Arno, it is great that you express a curiosity about Bruckner music. I do not feel however a regular recommendation for choosing a good performance and recording is something that you might need not if you are not familiar with Bruckner at all. You see, the recommendations for choosing a good recordings are coming for many reasons, some performances I find “interesting” that might have nothing to do with Bruckner orthodoxy. So, I would recommend you a different approach. 
 
Take one Bruckner work and spend some time with it, learn about it and listen good performances. If you develop an interest in a specific work then your might use it as a jump bard for the rest of Bruckner music. At least it was my pattern how I discovered new to me composers or styles. 
 
In case of Bruckner you high start with IV Symphony that I think is very accessible. Pick a Japanese DVD with Günter Wand conducting In 1990 Hamburg North German Radio Symphony Orchestra in Lubeck Cathedral. It is a very good combination of interpretation, sound, video presentation, orchestral quality and anything else. The first movement is available in YouTibe but get the DVD and try it in the way how it should be done: the full heated playback, dark room, full volume, preferably slow smoking Padron  1926 80th Anniversary …
