Fine, Marshall: The Completion of the Bruckner Ninth

Fine, Marshall: The Completion of the Bruckner Ninth
Marshall Fine at the time of his Finale composition
Marshall Fine was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1956. His father was a violinist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Fine was born with autism, but he went on to accomplish may things in his life which was tragically cut short when he died from injuries sustained in a traffic accident in Kentucky in August of 2014 (His obituary is below.)

Between December, 1977 and August, 1979 (when he was in his 20s), Fine composed a Finale reconstruction of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9

Opus13 - Finale to Anton Bruckner’s Symphony no. 9, orch [3333-8(5-8*)331-T-strs], 1977-79 (21’)

While no copy of the score exists in the Bruckner Archive, a diary by Mr. Fine has been retained that discusses his process of composition. While it is no substitution for the score, it does give the reader an indication of his process.

An attempt is being made to obtain a copy of the score.
