Anton Bruckner dedicated his Ninth Symphony to “my beloved God”. At the end of a lifetime’s spiritual striving, he poured both his unquenchable faith and his agonising doubts into one mighty final testament – and then died before he could complete it. In his first Edinburgh concert as Chief Conductor, Thomas Dausgaard offers one possible answer to Bruckner’s eternal question. This moving new completion of the unfinished symphony has been championed by Sir Simon Rattle, and after Dausgaard’s inspirational Bruckner performances in recent years, it should be a powerful way to launch a new chapter in the history of the BBC SSO – especially when paired with another valedictory work, Mozart’s final piano concerto in the masterful hands of Imogen Cooper.
