Benedictus

This is a repost, but it had to be done. I was lucky in the 80ies to be able to listen to many of Sergiu Celibidache’s rehearsals and concerts. And there were a few that stuck out, and Bruckner’s f-minor mass was one of them. I remember I sat here through half a dozen rehearsals and was able to follow the genesis of this extraordinary interpretation. One movement that never left my head ever since was the Benedictus. ( And
the passage from 3.46 min. on must be one of the most special moments in Bruckner, only comparable to some late Mozart.)
