This incredible recording of Anton Bruckner’s Symphonie IX also includes a bonus disc with the Version for Two Pianos. Featuring the Altomonte Orchester St. Florian under the direction of Remy Ballot, this album is a live recording of the original version. Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony is, in the composer’s own words, “The loveliest thing that I [Bruckner] ever composed.” The work is dedicated to the “dear Lord” and is the composer’s personal confrontation with his journey into the afterlife. The transcription for two pianos was arranged by Klaus Laczika and Matthias Giesen using a transcription by Dr. Karl Grunsky (1911) and more closely aligning it to Bruckner’s original scoring in the way of dynamics and instrumentation.
