Anton Bruckner’s Third Symphony - the first fully valid example of his extraordinary symphonic idea: a combination of resplendent sounds and church service, as well as demonic romanticism and the comforting belief in heaven.
“I was just going from the theatre building to Wahnfried at 5 o’clock when the master of all masters hurried towards me with open arms, embraced me and said: ‘Dear friend, the dedication is justified, you are giving me great pleasure with the work’.” (Anton Bruckner)
Anton Bruckner’s Third Symphony pays tribute to the deeply revered Richard Wagner, to whom it is also dedicated.
The live recording of the concert on 30th January 1970 in the Herkules-Saal of the Munich Residence with Rafael Kubelik and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is available again, now in CD format.
