Nicola Samale, Giuseppe Mazzuca, John A. Phillips, and Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs -- who collaborated on a completion of the Finale of Bruckner's Ninth Symphony.

The team of Nicola Samale and Giuseppe Mazzuca put together a new realization of the Bruckner Ninth Finale from 1983 to 1985 which was recorded by Eliahu Inbal and Gennadi Rozhdestvensky. The authors, Samale and Mazzuca, do not wish this version to be performed any longer. They were joined by John A. Phillips and Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs and over several years pursued the project further, producing a number of revisions. Their completion proposes that one way to realize Bruckner's intention is to combine themes from all four movements. The 1996 revision has been recorded by Johannes Wildner for Naxos and also by Kurt Eichhorn, with the Bruckner Orchestra in Linz, for the Camerata label. A new, revised edition of this completion was published in 2005 by Nicola Samale and Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs and has been recorded by Marcus Bosch for the label Coviello Classics. A revised reprint of this first revision was performed by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding, Stockholm, in November 2007. This revision was published in 2008 and was then recorded by conductor Friedemann Layer with the Musikalische Akademie des Nationaltheater-Orchesters Mannheim. The world premier of a final revision made in 2011 was given by the Dutch Brabants Orkest under the baton of Friedemann Layer in Breda (NL), 15 October 2011. A recording featuring Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic was released on EMI Classics on 22 May 2012. -- Notes condensed from
