About the Concert

You have to dare to start like that! Ludwig van Beethoven begins his first symphony with a dissonant chord. Rarely has a new chapter in music history been opened so unmistakably
It is also impossible to overhear how important Richard Wagner's music was for Bruckner. Bruckner had just finished composing the second movement of his Seventh when Wagner died. The Adagio with its Wagner tubas (a kind of horns) also shows how much this affected him. And this symphony has another special feature: the cymbal only makes a single stroke! But it is so impressive that it is worth letting the cymbal player "sit out" the entire symphony for it.

Since the 1970s, his international career as an opera and concert conductor has taken him all over the world.
