Cooke, Deryck: BBC Introduction to the 1887 Bruckner 8th

This download contains a scan of the actual script written by Deryck Cooke for the first modern performance of the 1887 version of the Bruckner Symphony No. 8. The first page is re-typed since the original was too faint to scan. The performance that was aired featured the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hans Hubert Schoenzeler. My thanks to Anthony Hodgson for supplying this material.
