- Symphony No. 9 in D Minor
- Recorded Live at the Salzburg Festival.
- Performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra, Christoph von Dohnányi conducting.
The Ninth Symphony by Beethoven set a standard back in the 1800’s. Many composers who lived many years later realized that their own “Ninth” would be inevitably compared with Beethoven’s. On this CD, Christoph von Dohnányi leads the Philharmonia Orchestra in a rousing live performance of Bruckner’s monumental Ninth Symphony, which stands alongside the other epoch-defining Ninth symphonies of Beethoven, Schubert, and Mahler. The movements are:
- I. Feierlich, misterioso
- II. Scherzo: Bewegt, lebhaft – Trio: Schnell – Scherzo
- III. Adagio: Langsam, feierlich
