Claudio Abbado leads the Lucerne Festival Orchestra for this live performance of Bruckner's Ninth Symphony.

Deutsche Grammophon feels immensely blessed and proud to release together with Accentus Music, Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 in D minor which was recorded as part of Abbado's final concert. A fitting tribute to an irreplaceable artist who was one of the greatest conductors and most inspiring musical figures of our time.

"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

"...the late Claudio Abbado always conducted with passion...a remarkable legacy of Abbado's vision, command and humanity...there is never a moment in which the structure loses cohesion...The apocalyptic dissonance towards the end of the Adagio is prepared with mounting intensity but still comes as an aural and visceral shock...[by ending with the Adagio] Abbado makes the symphony emotionally complete. His is a consummate interpretation." -Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph

"...[Abbado's] mastery on the podium appeared undimmed; indeed, it seems to have spurred him on to ever greater heights...[there is an intensity in the string-playing] and a sense of spiritual striving that culminates in one of the most awe-inspiring accounts of the great concluding adagio I have heard. This is a poignant memory of a magisterial interpreter: a Bruckner Ninth for the ages." -Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times (London)
