Symphony No. 4
The Romanian conductor Sergiu Celibidache was one of the most adamantly individual personalities in the music world. In particular he avoided making recordings because he believed they falsely represented his musical intentions. This live recording of Celibidache conducting the Muncher Philharmoniker in in Bruckner's Fourth Symphony captures one of the rare occasions that he consented to recording and affords glimpses into a fiercely protected musical mind.
