The World Premiere of the 1878 Bruckner 4th! - Recording available!
On May 1st of 2022, Warren Cohen and the MusicaNova Orchestra pulled off a coup by giving the world premiere in Scottsdale, Arizona of Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 in the version of 1878. Some of the differences are slight, but there are indeed markedly audible differences - especially in the second and fourth movements. The orchestra offered videos of the performance to donors who financially supported the premiere. Through a special arrangement with the orchestra, abruckner.com can now offer recordings of the performance as well. The recording is available as a Blu-Ray video, a DVD video and as an audio compact disc.
A conversation between conductor, Warren Cohen and editor, Benjamin Korstvedt can be seen here.
