The Bruckner Gesamtausgabe (Brucker's Complete Edition) is a critical edition of the works of Anton Bruckner.[1] Published by Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag Wien [de] in Vienna, it comprises three successive editions.

  • Alte Gesamtausgabe (1934–1944, Editorial Head: Robert Haas)
    This first edition (12 volumes issued)[2] included 'hybrid' scores for Symphonies Nos. 2 and 8 and other similar conflations for some other revised works (Mass No. 3).
  • Neue Gesamtausgabe (1951–1989, Editorial Head: Leopold Nowak)
    In this new edition Nowak et al. went about publishing several versions of some works, in the process correcting some mistakes of Haas. From 1990 onwards (Editorial Head: Herbert Vogg), William Carragan, Paul Hawkshaw, Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs et al. were in the process of reviewing and further correcting the work of Haas and Nowak.[3]
  • Anton Bruckner Gesamtausgabe (Editorial board: Paul Hawkshaw, Thomas Leibnitz, Andreas Lindner, Angela Pachovsky, Thomas Röder)
    In 2011 it has been decided to issue a new edition, which will include the content of the current edition and integrate the in the meantime retrieved sources.[4]
