Anton Bruckner (1824 Ansfelden/Upper Austria - 1896 Vienna) already began working on his Symphony in d minor in 1864/65, but he didn't finish it until 1869. It reflects Bruckner's development as a composer which came about through the influences of the music of Wagner and the so-called "Young German Movement." As a transitional work, Bruckner himself later declared the Nullte to be ungiltig (invalid). It isn't correct to brand Bruckner as merely a follower of Wagner's. For example, Bruckner never tried to use Wagner's concept of endless melody and his symphonies are a continuation of the traditions of Beethoven and Schubert. The areas in which Wagner's influence on Bruckner is the clearest are his instrumentation and harmonies. (E. Stadler)
