Zubin Mehta conducts Bruckner and Messiaen

A century separated Olivier Messiaen and Anton Bruckner, but they had a lot in common: both were among the leading organists of their time, and both were deeply rooted in the Catholic faith. Zubin Mehta combines Messiaen’s Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, a memorial to the dead of both world wars, with Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. It is not only the summation of the Austrian composer’s work but also a personal farewell to this world.
