The Philadelphia Orchestra Performs Bruckner
Conducting from memory, Yannick Nézet-Séguin led The Philadelphia Orchestra in a performance of Bruckner's unfinished Ninth Symphony on May 2, 2014. "In the driving scherzo, with its pounding chords and gnashing dissonance, played at a quicker tempo than you usually hear, Mr. Nézet-Séguin emphasized the wild, brutal elements of this vehement music," raved The New York Times.
Listen to an excerpt of the second movement (scherzo) from Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 that was captured live in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.
