Anton Bruckner left behind eight complete symphonies, but died while working on the great ninth. There are three movements, but no fourth. So do we miss a finale? Not at all, as a matter of fact. It is still one hour of music that builds to a vast, dramatic and beautiful arch before bidding farwell in a delicate fashion.
Bruckner, as well as the conductor Franz Welser-Möst, was Austrian; he was also a heavyweight symphonist. Many point out that in his large symphonies you can hear that he was also an organist. His symphonies are often described as musical cathedrals.
The much admired and respected Franz Welser-Möst is Music Director of the Cleveland Orchestra since 2002. He received the Eric Ericson Honorary Chair in 2018 from the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, and returns to lead the orchestra on a regular basis.
