Anton Bruckner (1824 - 1896) composed the Symphony No. 3 in D minor, WAB 103 in 1873, revised it twice, in 1877 and 1889; it was dedicated to Richard Wagner and is sometimes known as his "Wagner Symphony".

Carl Adolph Schuricht (1880 – 1967) recorded principally for Decca after the Second World War, but towards the end of his career he was taken up by EMI, who made with him a complete cycle of Beethoven Symphonies with the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra between 1957 and 1959 and a number of Bruckner Symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic. The recording of Bruckner's Third Symphony, in its 1889 version, was made in the Musikvereinssaal in Vienna in December 1965, just more than one year before Schuricht's death.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Testament Records LP, revived from the EMI-Columbia catalogue, was remastered at EMI's Abbey Road Studios in London, using pure analogue components only, from the original studio tapes through to the cutting head, and was pressed at Pallas.
