About

The conductor Sergiu Celibidache was a legend in his own lifetime, mesmerising orchestras with his intensity and brilliance, both in rehearsals and in performances – which were always conducted from memory.
 
His own connection with Bruckner's last great symphony is powerfully evident in this performance. The Celibidache Symphonic Series celebrates the historic release onto DVD of rare footage of the few performances ever recorded for television.
 
Celibidache conducts Bruckner’s Symphony no. 9 in D Minor with the Orchestra Sinfonica di Torino della RAI in this 1969 Turin recording. RAI's historic black and white master is faithfully restored for this release, with digitally re-mastered 2-track mono. It includes a 32-page booklet in three languages, with a newly-commissioned essay from Misha Donat on the genius of Celibidache.
 
Sergiu Celibidache's Bruckner is often monumental. It is also revelatory in a way no other Bruckner conductor equals. Celibidache conducts these great symphonies as if he were King Lear himself, for in every bar of Bruckner's scores he scales heights of pathos and emotion most other conductors simply do not see in Bruckner's writing.

‘Indeed, it is in the Bruckner symphonies that all of Celi’s qualities coalesce to achieve, in Marcus Herzog’s apt phrase, a simultaneity of opposites - detail within architecture, power without melodrama, melody embedded in harmony. Above all, Celi makes the artificial conventions of symphonic form seem so natural and utterly human. Alongside Furtwangler’s strikingly different but equally valid sense of personal drama, this is the most magnificent Bruckner I’ve ever heard.’ Classical Notes.net
