Sergiu Celibidache rehearsed Bruckner’s ninth symphony with the Munich Philharmonic for an extended and intense period. Using previously unreleased 16mm footage, the film focuses on the conductor for unusually long sequences, revealing the musical interaction in this tantalizing process of rediscovering a seemingly familiar piece.
