Twenty Listens

Today we are going to conclude (at least for now) our exploration into the symphonies of Anton Bruckner with his last symphony, No. 8. It took me probably twenty listens to understand this symphony. Bruckner’s music lacks the accessibility of Beethoven or Mozart, but it doesn’t lack in the depth and beauty departments once you understand it.

    Thank you so much for giving us this sublime music. The depth of emotion in it is spine tingling brought out by the incomparable interpretation of Celibidache! For me, the two of them transform the world into a spiritual wonderland every time.
