The Life of Anton Bruckner (A film by Hans Conrad Fischer)

The ONLY documentary on the famous composer Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) filmed in the 70's by Hans Conrad Fischer and in my opinion his biographical masterpiece.

This beautiful and rare film documents Anton Bruckner's entire life in the form of narrative and actual quotations...his triumphs, defeats, joys, passions, friends and enemies from his birth to his death. It reveals to us the man himself and his extraordinary art. With scenes and footage from his home, his landscapes, his travels and workplaces offers us the rare opportunity to understand and know Bruckner like never before. The film is interlaced with selections and excerpts from his symphonies, choral and chamber music filmed on location in the beautiful architectural baroque churches of Germany and Austria.
