MESSIAEN Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum
BRUCKNER Symphony No 9

Sir Simon Rattle conductor
London Symphony Orchestra

Bruckner died in 1896 leaving his Ninth Symphony unfinished: only in recent decades has the work’s true originality emerged, as musicians return to the original manuscripts. The deeply religious composer dedicated the work to God, and its devotions fittingly end in mystery. Messiaen’s monumental work (1965) also meditates on death and resurrection. He imagined it being played in ‘vast spaces: churches, cathedrals, and even out of doors and on high mountains.’
