Finale to the Symphony No. 9
Between December, 1977 and August, 1979, when he was studying for a masters degree at the University of Michigan, 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’)
A diary by Mr. Fine has been retained that discusses his process of composition. (See below)
In June of 2022, Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs discovered his copy of the Marshall Fine score. In 1990, Cohrs and Fine were exchanging letters and Mr. Cohrs assisted in making reduced copies of Mr. Fine's 14" by 19" original manuscript. Mr. Cohrs' copy was considered lost until now. A copy of the score is available for download below.
The score is of great interest since it is one of the earliest known attempts at completing the Finale of the Ninth Symphony. There has been no attempt to perform his completion.
