It is written that on the day Anton Bruckner died, he worked on his ninth symphony, referred to as the "curse of the 9th symphony", before going for a stroll through the Belvedere Palace Gardens. His funeral took place at Karlskirche, Vienna.
The commerative plaque (left), located at Karlskirche entrance, observes his passing. It reads "Zum gedenkam an In dieserkirche wurde sein Leichnam am 14 Oktober 1896 unter Teilnahme der Wiener Musikwelt feierlich eingesegnet." Roughly translated, "In Commemoration of Anton Bruckner. In this church, on October 14, 1896, his body was solemnly consecrated [with the] participation of the Viennese musical world.
