Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) was an Austrian composer known for his original symphonic works and their contribution to the development of the sonata form. His admiration of the works of the German composer Richard Wagner is seen in his use of entire families of instruments in his orchestrations to create chorale-like effects. Bruckner's works further influenced the Austrian composer Gustav Mahler, who was one of his pupils. This program provides a rare glimpse of Bruckner's life and work, and features performances of his music by the Vienna and Munich Philharmonic Orchestras.
