May, 2016: Symphony No. 9 / Georg Tintner / National Youth Orchestra of Canada
As remarkable as Tintner's Naxos cycle is, it also points out how late recognition came to him. After fleeing Austria in 1938, Tintner resided in New Zealand, Australia and finally Canada.
This month's offer is a recording of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9. The performance was recorded in concert in Kingston on August 21, 1977. It was never commercially released.
My thanks go to Tanya Tintner and the management of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada for permitting the distribution of this recording.
