From Bruckner’s manuscript for his Symphony No. 8 in C minor
Description  

Important Austrian composer (1824–1896) known for his symphonies, masses, and motets. His symphonies are considered emblematic of the final stage of Austro-German Romanticism because of their rich harmonic language, strong polyphonic character, and considerable length. Autograph musical manuscript fragment, unsigned, one musically lined page, 10.5 x 14, no date but circa 1884–1887. One page from Bruckner’s manuscript score for the fourth movement of the first version of his 8th Symphony in C minor, with only the instrument names, clarinet notes in the 11th bar, and notes for the three C trumpets in bars 11 and 12. A statement of authenticity was penned at the bottom by music teacher Karl Aigner: “Dr. Ant. Bruckner’s Handschrift, St. Florian, 8 Septb 1912, Karl Aigner.” Central vertical and horizontal folds with partial edge separations, uniform toning with a few mild stains, and various small edge tears, otherwise fine condition. Symphony No. 8 in C minor was the last symphony Bruckner completed, and went through a number of revisions and editions before finalized. This is from the first version, which he revised after receiving harsh criticism—he sent it to conductor Hermann Levi for his input, who said Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony was the greatest symphony written after Beethoven, but that the Eighth was a confusing jumble. A tremendous piece from a figurehead of Romanticism. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
