A new release from the series of Metropolitan Munich programs of Sergiu Celibidache (11. July 1912 – 14. August 1996) for his 100th Anniversary.
For the first time after 37 years, in 1992, Maestro Celibidache returned to the podium of the Berliner Philharmoniker for a reconciliatory concert. This was to be his last concert with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

The DVD Disc includes the Documentary ‘The Triumphant Return’ directed by Wolfgang Becker: The film documents the maestro Celibidache’s reunion with the Berliner Philharmoniker after 38 years, and includes extensive footage from the rehearsals of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 7 and interviews with former orchestra members.

“An initial session with these performances confirms that among the most striking aspects of Sergiu Celibidache's Bruckner is its tendency towards extreme breadth; but, as the conductor himself suggests in an interview featured alongside the Fourth Symphony, other considerations are of equal if not more importance.”
