Bruckner: Symphony Ii In C Minor, Wab 102 Original
Altomonte Orchester St. Florian; Ballot, Rémy
Bruckner's Second, like most of his symphonies, underwent numerous changes and revisions during the composer's lifetime, in this case on the advice of his patron, Hofkapellmeister Herbeck, before the first publication by Bruckner himself, "so as not to overwhelm the audience". The sheet music of the very first 'unheard' version lies in the archive of the Sankt Florian Abbey, from which the prominent Bruckner researcher William Carragan reconstructed the first untouched version of this great symphony. This version is presented as live recording from the Bruckner Tage 2019 with the Altomonte Orchestra under the baton of Remy Ballot.
