Bruckner, one of the world’s most significant symphonists, was able to complete only the first three movements of his Ninth Symphony before his death. He referred to the third movement as “a farewell to life.” Although he left significant sketches of a fourth movement, he was keenly aware that his time was running out. As such, the original three movements of this symphony usually stand alone, as an incomplete yet satisfying whole. Noted Bruckner scholar, Roberto Ferrazza, has composed a fourth movement based on Bruckner’s notes. Thailand Phil is proud to premiere this monumental work with Ferrazza’s final movement.
Friday’s performance will open with a dazzling performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto by soloist Darko Brlek and will conclude with the original three movements of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 9. Saturday’s performance will be solely dedicated to Brucker’s symphony with the premiere of Ferrazza’s finale.
