Anton Bruckner (1842-1896): Symphony No. 4 in E-flat major (Romantic)

Anton Bruckner is perhaps the link between all the great musicians of Vienna at the turn of the century: Brahms, Wagner and Mahler, among other noteworthy conductors and aspiring composers. He brought universal spirituality and unmatched timelessness to a genre that only started to be appreciated after his death. The “Romantic” Symphony is arguably the composer’s most successful foray into the symphonic literature, with an underlying program that involves a medieval city, horns announcing the day from the towers, hunters in the woods, and bird sounds to help complete the romantic picture for the listener. Providing counterpoint to the Bruckner symphony is a new composition by the Philharmonic’s composer-in-residence, Edgar Girtain.
