Lost in addition

In two letters to Nikisch, Bruckner mentions that 'many important things are not marked in the score, including frequent changes of tempo' (letters of 17 July and 5 November 1884, i.e., before the first performance). Evidently, the solution to the mystery of these entries is that they were the result of instructions which Bruckner gave by word of mouth, most probably after the performances of the symphony on two pianos by Josef Schalk, Löwe and Zottmann, and must have been entered into the score on his authority. Since they are not in the composer's hand, they have been placed within square brackets in the present edition. This is one of the very rare instances when verbal instructions of Bruckner's, backed up by passages from letters, can and must be taken into account in addition to the autograph itself.

The same applies to the controversial cymbal clash at rehearsal letter W in the Adagio, which was later inserted by Bruckner on a separate piece of paper. It stemmed from a suggestion by Nikisch, as the previously cited letter by Josef Schalk of 10 January 1885 shows: 'You may not know', Schalk wrote, 'that Nikisch has managed to get us the clash of cymbals in the Adagio that we so badly wanted (C major, 6/4 chord), as well as triangle and timpani; this pleases us no end.' Contrary to what is said in the first edition of the score, it is questionable whether the adjacent words in the autograph, 'gilt nicht' ('not genuine'), which would appear to revoke the addition, originated with Bruckner himself, since the handwriting is very different from the composer's.

"The business of making records has worried me so much and I'm only just beginning to come to terms with it or, rather, I've found a solution. I'm delighted to say that I've made my last "studio" disc. From now on everything will be live, all or nothing, selected from a mountain of tapes waiting for me in Paris. I cause lots of problems because I don't believe in editing and splicing—a bit of this, a bit of that. I never play anything the same way twice, the acoustics vary from hall to hall and so do the off-stage noises of my audiences. My producers and engineers tear their hair out on my behalf but I refuse to compromise. I believe in the real thing."


From an interview given in 1997.

"Music is always migrating from its point of origin to its destiny in someone's fleeting moment of experiencelast night's concert, tomorrow's solitary jog."
