By his own reckoning, Bruckner began his career as a professional composer when he was thirty-nine years old. With a mere exercise for a symphony under his belt - the unnumbered one in F minor - he was now ready to write his first true symphony. The world was not. First performed in 1868 in Linz - badly - the work flopped and was put aside until nine years and five symphonies later, when it was gently adjusted. A subsequent performance in 1884 was Bruckner's "most successful Viennese performance to date", prompting, perplexingly, a thorough revision that would be the 1891 "Vienna" version. This recording uses the unadulterated 1868 "Linz" version.
