"A Hero's Life", TrV 190
Bruckner Orchestra Linz
Markus Poschner Conductor
Martin Grubinger percussion instrument
The Bruckner Orchestra Linz will guest with a large symphonic repertoire under its principal conductor Markus Poschner. Richard Strauss took the "Symphonic Poem", the programme music of the Romantic period, to new heights. The hero in "heroic life" is the creative artist who prevails against all hostility and is ultimately celebrated in an almost Olympic transfiguration. A hero who bears the traits of his inventor. But also a hero who victoriously steps through the gates of new music around 1900. Before that, the unique Martin Grubinger dedicated himself to a brilliant percussion concert by the Finnish composer Kalevi Aho, born in 1949, who is an original polystilist following Mahler and Schnittke. The title "Sieidi" means "place of worship". A ritual of extremes, a dance on a volcano. The soloist is the shaman of this exciting celebration of sounds that ends in silence.
