Default Bruckner's 9th Symphony

Bruckner is an old friend, musically, though he died long before I was born (imagine that!) Stanslaw Skrowaczewski was the primary conductor of the MN Orchestra for many years and the major force behind building Orchestra Hall, giving the orchestra a home better suited to their talents and stature than the aging Northrup Auditorium.

Stan died recently, still conducting into his 90s, physically strong and mentally agile right to the end. The combination of Bruckner and Skrowaczewski is just unbelievable. I have a good stereo system but most of my record collection was lost in divorce. While I would like to retrieve it, I can listen to nearly anything by streaming it off the internet. The quality is not always as good as some of the old 'hard copy', but I have hearing compromises which makes this largely irrelevant. Most of the 'hearing' is remembering, as I listen to the reproduction.

The other night, I had a sudden desire to listen to Stan's rendition of Bruckner's 9th, playing it from YouTube. One of the comments at the end expressed the awe felt by the listener as the last horn chord faded away at the end of the 3rd (and last) movement, the adagio. I was moved to respond with the comment, below. Incidentally, I sometimes identify myself as Hoo Hoo Tai elsewhere, and may change my icon here as well.

Hoo Hoo Tai Wise Old Owl
I first heard this piece, and that wonderful clarion call at the end, in the early '60s. I was in college, very nerdy, driving my first car, a Jag XK 150, along the Sky Line Drive (Duluth, MN), top down, late at night, feeling like a king. I had just locked up the college observatory and was heading to a party - with Actual Girls. That ending just took my breath away. Girls, stars and Jag were forgotten in a moment.

I wasn't to meet Stan until many years had passed. Now I am near 80. Stan is no longer with us. That final call reminds me of Lord Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" -
"Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea"

That Last Clear Call could have been written for Stan. I wish it were for me.

Rotting, Stagnant Earth by Agiel. I really enjoyed this album, 'Dark Pantheons Again Will Reign' - it's got a few interesting ideas riff-wise, with an edge of symphonic black metal influence keeping things atmospheric and dark.
