The Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra were linked by a long and intensive artistic collaboration, brought to an abrupt end by his death in October 2021. BR Klassik now presents outstanding and as yet unreleased live recordings of concerts from the past years. This recording of Bruckner's Te Deum and his Eighth Symphony (version by Robert Haas, 1939) documents concerts performed in the Philharmonie im Gasteig in November 2010, and in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz in December 1993.

Recorded live on 10-12 November 2010 at the Philharmonie im Gasteig, Munich, Germany (Te Deum) and 15-17 December 1993 at the Herkulessaal der Residenz, Munich, Germany (Symphony No 8).
