Simon Rattle conducts the completed Ninth Symphony of Anton Bruckner

Although Anton Bruckner died while working on the finale of his Ninth Symphony, he left countless sketches behind. In 2012, Simon Rattle conducted the work in a fascinating reconstruction. The completed movement reveals many disturbing moments as well as Bruckner-like grandeur. But, as Simon Rattle says, “everything that is strange about this finale is 100% Bruckner. And one can see the terror and the fear and the passion which he was going through in his life at that time.”
