Abstract Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 in C minor is the last Symphony the composer completed. When Bruckner sent it to Hermann Levi in 1887, the conductor who had lead his 7th to great success, Levi did not understand this very different work and rejected it. Bruckner then set to work revising the symphony and completed a new version in 1890. Habakuk Traber explains this masterpiece by introducing Bruckner's personality and his unique style of composing. Pierre Boulez conducts the Vienna Philharmonic.
