Many consider this symphony to be Bruckner’s finest. In this enormous orchestral structure, he uses the orchestra to breaking point, suggestively building up culmination after culmination with great power. There is also a slow-burning, fiery passion that reflects his steadfast catholic faith, such as in the many serene melodies and the small, heavenly passages for harp. Once you’ve been enticed into Bruckner’s unique world, you won’t want to leave. There time stands still.
Earlier announced conductor Simone Young has cancelled and is replaced by Leopold Hager, one of Austria’s most experienced and respected conductors. He has been principal conductor of the famous Mozarteum Orchestra and at Volksoper Wien, and a guest of the Vienna Philharmonic and Deutsche Oper Berlin.
