Concerto for Violoncello and Orchestra,
B minor, op. 104
Symphony No. 6, A major, WAB 106
Bruckner Orchester Linz
Markus Poschner conductor
Julia Hagen violoncello
The Bruckner Orchester Linz, with its principal conductor Markus Poschner, is particularly fond of the great symphonies of its namesake Anton Bruckner. This time the "Sixth", which the composer called his "most perky", is on the program. Bruckner's humorous statements should not be taken too seriously, for the sauciness of his music was so alien to his time that the work had to wait a long time for its premiere, until 1899, when Gustav Mahler was at the podium. Unfortunately, the creator of this A major symphony had been dead for three years, so he could not protest against the massive cuts. At least he had been able to hear the two middle movements of the motivically dense piece in 1883, including the wonderfully abysmal Adagio. We can look forward to a complete performance of the exciting "Sixth" and to a reencounter with a young soloist from Salzburg who has been making a world career for some years now - Julia Hagen. With this name you have to play a string instrument, in her case it is the cello. What can be more beautiful than the concerto that Antonín Dvořák, one of the most important melodists in the history of music, created for this so human instrument?
