Bruckner - Symphony No. 8

Thursday, November 9, 2017

7:30 pm Verizon Hall
Bruckner, says Yannick, is the only composer he feels as if he had conducted in a previous life. You'll understand why he's sealed his international reputation as a true Brucknerian when he leads the Orchestra in this epic symphony, the last the composer completed. It's “the summit of his art,” says Yannick, with a final coda that conjures “all the bells of the world ringing at the same time.” A smaller ensemble and the “lovely turns” (New York Times) of concertmaster David Kim open the program with Bach's airy and melodic Violin Concerto No. 2, an intimate contrast to Bruckner's intricate masterpiece.
