The Philadelphia Orchestra -- Bruckner's Final Symphony
Did Bruckner sense that his Ninth Symphony would be his final work? After nine years of toil over the score, only three of the four movements were completed upon his death in 1896. A clear nod to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, also his last, Bruckner begins his Ninth Symphony in the same key of D minor. The second movement of the Bruckner, like the Beethoven, is a blistering Scherzo. But instead of a rousing conclusion, Bruckner’s final symphony ends with an introspective and arresting Adagio.
