Zubin Mehta conducts Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony

Zubin Mehta conducts Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony

Berliner Philharmoniker
Zubin Mehta

  • Olivier Messiaen
    Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum for wind orchestra and percussion

  • Anton Bruckner
    Symphony No. 9 in D minor

They belonged to different stylistic periods but nevertheless had a great deal in common: Olivier Messiaen and Anton Bruckner numbered among the leading organists of their day, and both were deeply rooted in the Catholic faith, which considerably influenced their works. Zubin Mehta combines Messiaen’s Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, an impressive musical memorial to the dead of both world wars, with Anton Bruckner’s monumental Ninth Symphony. In this work, Bruckner not only sums up his symphonic oeuvre but also bids farewell to this world in a very personal way.
