Review of Hansjörg Albrecht – Bruckner: Ninth Symphony

Review of Hansjörg Albrecht – Bruckner: Ninth Symphony

Just in time for the 200th year of Anton Bruckner's birth, Hansjörg Albrecht completed his first recording of all symphonies for organ with the Ninth Symphony.

Organist Hansjörg Albrecht has completed his encyclopedic project and presents the Ninth as the final installment of his cycle with all of Bruckner's symphonies. The venue is Fraumünster Zurich, where he recorded the transcription of the Ninth, including the final movement completed by Gerd Schaller. The program continues with Bruckner's motto, arranged by the soloist himself, and a choral overture by Philipp Mainz. Of course, Albrecht had long been familiar with the symphonic timbre of this music. The first movement of Part Nine shows this through its climaxes, transitions, and cleverly chosen registers. It aptly captures the ghostly, ghost-like character of the Scherzo. What a contrast to the choral-like theme of the Adagio. So this unique project came to fruition in time for Bruckner's 200th birthday.
