Started over ten years ago, the Piano Duo of Dino Sequi and Gerhard Hofer have come to the last of Bruckner’s symphonies with a performance of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 9 in a version for piano four-hands. The series of concerts began in 2008 and continued (with breaks in 2011 and 2015) every year on Bruckner’s birthday.

Critic Balduin Sulzer for the Kronen Zeitung wrote, “Sequi and Hofer did this with a crystal-clear attack, fiery emotion, enthralling dynamics and overwhelming dramatics, which reached its peak in the 2nd movement (Scherzo), to a fulfilling climax of interpretation. Sensational!”

This recording is available exclusively through abruckner.com as are the performances of the previous Symphonies 1-8.

Next year, the cycle will conclude with a piano four-hands transcription of the early Symphony in D Minor “Die Nullte.”
