Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 3 in D minor

Conductor: Kent Nagano

Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

So many epithets for one composer! Anton Bruckner was variously called a "holy fool", "God’s musician", a "prophet of the New Testament", a "crazy crackpot", "a victim of madness" and more. What did he do? Taking Beethoven’s symphonies as his point of departure, Bruckner thought up, experienced and wrote down great symphonies. It took time and patience until realization dawned that here was something special, a music which knew and respected boundaries, but still seems to break all limits. Within Bruckner, an opposite world was alive, opposite also to the one whose representatives and protagonists he venerated, such as Richard Wagner and Franz Liszt. Bruckner’s symphonic works characterize only themselves. They have their own programme, their own fate. This liberates them from any boundaries, leading to such profound meditative states that distraction becomes impossible and the expansion of time opens our consciousness to the space of the universe itself.

One hour before the concert, Kerstin Schüssler-Bach will give a pre-concert talk (in german).
