In January 2014, music lovers worldwide were saddened to learn of the death of conductor Claudio Abbado. Deutsche Grammophon feels immensely blessed and proud to be releasing, together with Accentus Music, Bruckner 's Symphony no. 9 in D minor, which was recorded as part of Abbado's final concert. The concert received very positive reviews from the press: "Mr. Abbado led an otherworldly account of Bruckner's 9th Symphony. Never have I heard as magisterial and moving performance of the work as that given by the 80-year-old maestro and his fabulous Lucerne Festival Orchestra" (Wall Street Journal). The concert was recorded by Accentus Music during the 75th Lucerne Festival in 2013 with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, and this release is a fitting tribute to an irreplaceable artist, who was one of the greatest conductors and most inspiring musical figures of our time. With this record, Deutsche Grammophon and Accentus Music wish to pay tribute to the maestro and honour what would have been his 81st birthday on June 26, 2014
