Back in 2008 when Dino Sequi and Gerhard Hofer began their cycle of Bruckner symphonies in transcriptions for piano four-hands, they were thinking of a series of 9 symphonies. The project was to perform one of Bruckner's symphonies at the Old Linz Cathedral on Bruckner's birthday (September 4th). Performances were planned to conclude in 2018. Symphonies 1-3 were performed in 2008, 9 and 10, Symphonies 4-6 were performed in 20012, 13 and 14. Symphonies 7-9 ware performed in 2016, 17 and 18.

But as the project was coming to completion, the piano duo discovered a manuscript in the Austrian National Library that contained a piano four-hands transcription of Bruckner's early Symphony in D minor. The transcription was prepared by Bruckner's pupil August Stradal (1860-1930) who prepared transcriptions of several of Bruckner's orchestral scores.

Subsequently, the concert series was extended to include this discovered transcription and it was performed on September 4th of 2019. The performance project has now concluded with ten Bruckner symphonies being played and recorded.

Program notes are in German and English.
