The organ is Bruckner's instrument, which stayed with him all his life. Bruckner was already celebrated by his contemporaries as a great organ soloist. So what could be more natural than to arrange his phantastic Ninth Symphony for the organ and thus reveal the essence of the work?!
Gerd Schaller had already supplemented and completed Bruckner's Ninth based on original sources. Now he has arranged the completed Ninth for organ and also recorded it himself on the main organ of the former Cistercian abbey church in Ebrach. The recording was made by the Bavarian Radio Studio Franken. The double CD has been published by Profil Edition Hänssler, the organ sheet music has been published by Musikverlag Ries & Erler, Berlin.

Anton Bruckner's string quintet is one of the unknown works of the composer. Wrong, according to Gerd Schaller - who has now edited the piece for a large orchestra and recorded it on CD with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Anton Bruckner's last, his Ninth Symphony, remained unfinished, for the composer died during the work on the 4th movement - to which, however, numerous sketches have been preserved. Gerd Schaller reviewed this material and recently presented his own complete set of this final movement, which was recorded in July 2018 with the Philharmonie Festiva on CD. The score has been published by Ries & Erler, Berlin.
