An Organ Transcription of the Bruckner Ninth may soon appear on CD
In 1994, Eberhard Klotz prepared an organ version of the Bruckner Symphony No. 9 conceived in the style of the late 19th century organ symphony. After a successful concert tour in Germany and Switzerland (Berlin/Dome, Karlsruhe/Stadtkirche, Madgeburg/Cathedral, Hannover/Marktkirche, Görlitz/St. Peter and Paul etc.), the German-Swiss organist Thilo Muster will record the organ transcription.

In order to finance this extraordinary project, a crowdfunding action will start in mid-octobre on the platform www.wemakeit.com The recording will be made on the renowned Stahlhuth-Organ in Dudelange/Luxemburg www.orgue-dudelange.lu and will be recorded by the new label organroxx.com which is also a radio station dedicated to organ music.

Klotz has had a life long interest in Bruckner’s works and started to transcribe his symphonies for the organ as early as in the 1980s. Bruckner ninth was the first of a series of symphonies transcribed for the organ of which the ninth, the sixth and the fifth are already available at the German publishing company Merseburger. On the occasion of Bruckner’s anniversary in 2024, all of his symphonies will be published by Merseburger as organ transcriptions by Klotz.
