• new filmed documentary „Anton Bruckner – The Making of a Giant“ directed by Reiner E. Moritz

„Anton Bruckner – The Making of a Giant“ is the first in-depth documentary about a composer who was long time underestimated by his contemporaries and only found recognition after his death. In the meantime, the Upper Austrian composer has become one of the most pioneering composers who significantly influenced the history of music until the 20th century. Director Reiner E.
