Bruckner is “one of the great symphonists of all time,” says Yannick. His music is “spiritual, romantic, dreamy, imposing, cataclysmic … music that excites all the emotions and magnifies the results of the symphony.” A Bruckner champion and world-renowned interpreter, Yannick's deep affinity for the composer shines in passionate performances of the thrilling Third Symphony, “an unquestioned masterpiece, a citadel that no critic can pull down. Bruckner's invention is exuberant throughout: the finale confidently transforms the tragic mood of the first movement into triumph.” (The New Yorker) A set of exquisite Bruckner motets, sung a cappella, provides a contemplative opening to a program that aims to end the season's musical journey in communion with the divine.
