In 2019, Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra released their second Bruckner recording as a hybrid SACD on Reference Recordings, a powerful interpretation of the unfinished Symphony No. 9 in D minor that shows these musicians' remarkable affinity for the composer. In choosing the unfinished, three-movement version of the work, thereby avoiding any controversy over the various completions of Bruckner's intended finale, Honeck adheres to the long-established 1951 edition by Leopold Nowak, so there are no textual surprises. What is somewhat unexpected for a performance of the Ninth is Honeck's careful analysis of the material Bruckner incorporated, such as the "Miserere" from the "Gloria" of his Mass in D minor, the "Annunciation of Death" motive from the Eighth Symphony, and references to the Latin text of the Agnus Dei which influenced the design of the Adagio, among other internal evidence that sheds light on Bruckner's religious motivation in composing this symphony. Many conductors recognize the significance of Bruckner's dedication of the work to God, yet Honeck has identified the particular instances in the symphony that, like the structure of the Fifth Symphony, clearly reveal Bruckner's faith, and that the Ninth is far from being absolute music without programmatic content. This no doubt adds power to the music and clarifies its somewhat mystifying content. The wide-open sound of this audiophile recording goes far in conveying the expressive depth and sweep of the performance, capturing the orchestra in a spacious acoustic that adds true grandeur to Bruckner's most personal paean to God. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
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. The Altomonte Orchestra St. Florian was founded in 1996, the 100th anniversary of Anton Bruckner's death, by Augustinus Franz Kropfreiter (1936-2003, composer, organist and regens chori of St Florian) and Thomas Wall (solo cellist) on the basis of an initiative and with the support of the mayor Mag. Eva Reisinger. Since 2003 Matthias Giesen (Music University Vienna, organist and, from 2003 to 2017, regens chori of St. Florian) has been the conductor of the Altomonte Orchestra, while Rémy Ballot has been the "Principal Guest Conductor" since 2013. The orchestra's name refers to the Baroque painters Martino and Bartolomeo Altomonte, who with their frescoes gave the formal state rooms of the monastery of St. Florian their unique and incomparable atmosphere. The Altomonte Orchestra regards the cultivation of the music tradition and church music in St Florian as a special responsibility. © Gramola

The most spacious main theme of symphonic history in sunny E major: Summer landscape, home, billowing wheat fields, shining baroque architecture. Wagner's death-throes, «breakthrough chord», funeral music, loneliness, confidence, stairway to heaven. Once the 7th has conquered the world, the world returns to its source as a guest. Bruckner's place of power, monastery St. Florian has its own space / time dimensions. «For Anton Bruckner, the world will not be ready until it has to flee to him.» (Ernst Kurth 1907). Come to the 7th, the thematic arc of the week. For an adventure trip. Just now. Find confidence in Bruckner's 7th. If the 7th reflects a zenith in Bruckner's life, then in the concert of 2018 it is also an axis monument for the Bruckner Days and the history of interpretation: the world's first major Bruckner cycle from his home of St. Florian, with the Altomonte Orchestra and OÖJSO under Rémy Ballot. The Altomonte Orchestra St. Florian was founded in 1996, the 100th anniversary of Anton Bruckner's death, by Augustinus Franz Kropfreiter (1936-2003, composer, organist and regens chori of St Florian) and Thomas Wall (solo cellist) on the basis of an initiative and with the support of the mayor Mag. Eva Reisinger. Since 2003 Matthias Giesen (Music University Vienna, organist and, from 2003 to 2017, regens chori of St. Florian) has been the conductor of the Altomonte Orchestra, while Rémy Ballot has been the «Principal Guest Conductor» since 2013. The orchestra's name refers to the Baroque painters Martino and Bartolomeo Altomonte, who with their frescoes gave the formal state rooms of the monastery of St. Florian their unique and incomparable atmosphere. The Altomonte Orchestra regards the cultivation of the music tradition and church music in St Florian as a special responsibility. Rémy Ballot was born in Paris. During his training in violin, music theory and music education at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, which he completed with honours, at the age of 16 he met his mentor Sergiù Celibidache, under whose two-year tuition and inspiration Ballot ultimately developed his own style. While still a student he set up his own orchestra of talented young musicians in Paris, which gave him his first opportunity to present his great talent to the public. © Gramola
