CD89230 Bruckner's 9th - in a completed version by William Car

William Carragan's may be a name known to some members of OS, though they couldn't include me in their number. Here's a short bio from the Saint Rose Camarata website.

"William Carragan, musicologist and harpsichordist, is known for his research in both baroque chamber music and nineteenth-century symphonic literature.

He studied piano with his mother, Martha Beck, and with Stanley Hummel, harpsichord with Louis Bagger, and composition with Alfred Swan. He has performed in the Capital District many times, with solo appearances with the Albany Symphony, the Vermont Symphony, at the Brockport Keyboard Festival, and with other orchestras, and chamber appearances with Music at Page Hall, Capitol Chamber Artists, Williamstown Early Music, The Aode Consort, and other groups. He recently prepared harpsichord versions of two multiple violin concertos of Vivaldi, and presented them this summer in concert with Taconic Harpsichordists. He is a contributing editor of the Anton Bruckner Collected Edition in Vienna, for which he prepared a new edition of the Bruckner Second Symphony, in two versions, over the period of 1986-2005. He has also reconstructed the earliest version of the Bruckner First Symphony, which was recorded on Naxos in 1996, and a previously unheard version of the Third, which was premiered in Japan in 2007. From 1979 to 1983 he devoted himself to a completion of the Bruckner Ninth; so far it has been performed in six countries, most recently by Musica Nova in Scottsdale, Arizona earlier this month, and it has received four recordings with two more on the way. He was Professor of Physics at Hudson Valley Community College from 1965 to 2001, and is the author of a comprehensive four-volume textbook of introductory university physics."

The performance dates from 1 August 2010, and was part of that year's Ebracher Musiksommer. It was played by Philharmonie Festiva conducted by Gerd Schaller. This was its first outing in Germany apparently.

It was broadcast by BR-Klassik on Tuesday 4 January 2011

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
