This is a re-release of an SWRmusic-Bestseller, containing the concert recording of Bruckner's No.9 from September 20th, 1996 at the Stuttgart Liederhalle, conducted by one of the most prominent conductors of the 20th century, Carlo Maria Giulini. Carlo Maria Giulini was born in Barletta in 1914 and concluded his study of conducting at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena and the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome. He debuted as a conductor in 1944 with the Augusteo Orchestra, and at the same time became Fernando Previtali’s assistant in the orchestra of the RAI in Rome. Giulini gave up conducting in 1998. His life’s work includes a large number of phonograph recordings with, among them, the Vienna Philharmonic, which counted Giulini as its most important conductor for many years. After a long illness, Carlo Maria Liulini died in June 2005, and was laid to rest in the family chapel in Bolzano.
