Gerd Schaller's 2018 revision of his Bruckner Ninth Finale is released on CD
Profil Recordings released their latest Bruckner recording - the Symphony No. 9 with Gerd Schaller's revised completion of the Finale. This recording comes from a performance given at Ebrach in July of 2018.

In discussing his new edition, Gerd Schaller states,

From the experience of the first performance in 2016 I have revised my completion of the final movement again. Above all it was important for me to achieve a greater clarity - especially regarding the orchestration where I made some changes. Some passages became more concentrated, others more rich and elaborated.

But there are also some structural changes and improvements, also in the apotheosis of the coda. As a result of the revision it is possible to speak about a new variant with audible changes. The new double CD, also released by Profil Haenssler, follows the edition of the score edition by Ries & Erler, Berlin.

The new CD release also includes a detailed booklet (68 pages) with the focus on the completion of the final movement of Bruckners Ninth.
