Celibidache Rehearses Bruckner's Ninth / Munich PO [DVD]

Album Summary

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

Notes & Reviews:

For a full 60 minutes Sergiu Celibidache rehearses Bruckner's 9th - a key work for the composer, who did not complete any more compositions after he finished the Adagio. It is also a key work for this conductor, who towards the end of his life frequently returned to working on Bruckner's late symphonies. In no other documentary film about Celibidache does one experience with such immediacy the moment of music being created.

The WholeNote
I do enjoy some rehearsal videos and often find them very absorbing and informative. I can enthusiastically recommend a new DVD, Celibidache Rehearses Bruckner's Ninth (ARTHAUS MUSIC 101555, 1 CD). In his late years the conductor took the time to perfect minute details of balance and tempo. "I breathe with you, and that is the secret of phrasing: where you breathe and how you breathe." This video is only of the Adagio movement and is interlaced with Celibidache's appreciation of Bruckner the composer and visionary. Profoundly satisfying, this should not be missed by a thoughtful person who gets Bruckner.
