Album Summary

>Bruckner, Anton : Symphony no 9 in D minor, WAB 109
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The loveliest thing that I [Bruckner] have ever composed" was performed in summer 2015 at the Bruckner Festival at Monastery St. Florian in Upper Austria, Anton Bruckners refuge, home and final resting place. This refers to the Adagio of his Unfinished Symphony No. 9, dedicated to the "dear Lord" (cit. Anton v. Webern) and his willful personal confrontation with the transition to the hereafter. Remy Ballot and the Altomonte Orchestra form a liaison with the extraordinary acoustics of the basilica - virtually the Holy Spirit in this musical Trinity - and transform the woe and sorrow of the bereaved as well as the ambiguity about what remains after one's death into heavenly spheres. Bonus disc: The transcription for two pianos presented on Disc 2 was made by Matthias Giesen and Klaus Laczika using the transcription by Dr. Karl Grunsky (1911) and adapting it to Bruckner's original text in terms of instrumentation and dynamics.
