Bruckner's Ninth Symphony

Bruckner's last, unfinished symphony is performed at the Royal Albert Hall by the last youth orchestra to visit the Proms in the 2010 season. The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester was founded by Claudio Abbado in 1986, and was the first orchestra to unite musicians from both Eastern and Western Europe. They are led by conductor Herbert Blomstedt in a programme that includes Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen with baritone Christian Gerhaher, and Hindemith's Symphony Mathis der Maler.
