So much of the music of Anton Bruckner was privately dedicated to the God he served, but his final work was publicly dedicated to "the Beloved God." Without a doubt, Bruckner's works are a representation of his devotion and unwavering faith, but there's a dark side to his story that is often hidden behind the blinding brilliance of his symphonies, especially his Symphony No. 9.
