September, 2021: Symphony No. 8 / Lovro von Matacic / RAI Orchestra of Torino
In 1986, RAI, the Italian Radio and Television released a series of three cassette tapes featuring performances by the Croatian conductor and composer, Lovro von Matacic who had died in January of 1985. The set was entitled,"Omaggio a Matacic." All performances were with the RAI Symphony Orchestra of Turin. One of those cassette tapes featured a performance of Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 in C Minor. The performance was recorded in Turin on November 18, 1983, just thirteen months before the conductor's death at the age of 86. As far as can be determined, these performances were only released by RAI on cassette.
