Bruckner Mass in F Minor DVD

Margaret Price (soprano), Doris Soffel (mezzo-soprano), Peter Straka (tenor), Matthias Holle, Hans Sotin (bass); Munich Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic Choir, Sergiu Celibidache (conductor)

Sergiu Celibidache conducts Anton Bruckner's Mass in F Minor, which the composer himself called 'the most difficult of all masses'. The film documents the work process from the first rehearsals with piano and choir to the eventual integration of choir, orchestra and soloists. The musical structure, initially created in Munich, is adapted to the acoustic requirements of St Florian, and then performed in concert. Anton Bruckner was the organist at St Florian as a young man and wrote many of his masterpieces there. Today, he is buried underneath the organ. Bonus - Guest appearance of Sergiu Celibidache and the Munich Philharmonic in Moscow during a state visit, 1989.
