Notes and Editorial Reviews
In January 2014, music lovers worldwide were saddened to learn that Claudio Abbado had passed away.
Deutsche Grammophon feels immensely blessed and proud to be releasing together with Accentus Music Bruckner’s Symphony no. 9 in D minor, which was recorded as part of Abbado’s final concert.
“Mr. Abbado led an otherworldly account of Bruckner's 9th Symphony. Never have I heard as magisterial and moving performance of the work as that given by the 80-year-old maestro and his fabulous Lucerne Festival Orchestra. (Wall Street Journal)
A fitting tribute to an irreplaceable artist, who was one of the greatest conductors and most inspiring musical figures of our time. With this record, Deutsche Grammophon
and Accentus Music wish to pay tribute to the maestro and honor what would have been his 81st birthday at the end of June.
