Celibidache Rehearses Bruckner's 9th
For a full 60 minutes Celibidache rehearses Bruckner's Ninth - a key work for the composer, who did not complete any more compositions after he finished the Adagio. It is also a key work for Celibidache, who towards the end of his life frequently returned to working on Bruckner's late symphonies, performing them in guest appearances all over the world with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. In no other documentary film about Celibidache does one experience with such immediacy the moment of music being created. 'I breathe with you, and that is the secret of phrasing: where you breathe and how you breathe.'
