CD: Abbado conducts Bruckner


Anton Bruckner
Symphony No. 1 in C minor, WAB 101 (Vienna version 1890/91)
Symphony No. 9 in D minor, WAB 109

(Recorded live in Lucerne, August 2012 & August 2013)

Claudio Abbado’s final two Bruckner performances in Lucerne are gathered on one CD. In the summer of 2012, Abbado performed the First Symphony with his hand-picked LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA, in the late version of 1890/91 from Vienna. A year later, he led Bruckner’s final symphony, the Ninth — a work of farewell in what turned out to be his own farewell concert. Abbado’s moving interpretation of this symphonic swan song was his very last performance.
