Bruckner's Sixth Symphony


  • Carl Maria Von Weber Konzertstück
  • Willem Pijper Orchestral piece with piano
  • Anton Bruckner Sixth symphony

He is sometimes called the composer of the German forest: Carl Maria von Weber. Especially after his brilliant opera Der Freischütz. What is less known is that he toured the German concert halls as a piano virtuoso with moving sonatas and piano concertos written by his own hand. And also with his Konzertstück, behind which lies a romantic love story. The narrator behind the grand piano is Ronald Brautigam. He also plays the solo in the still very romantic Orkeststuk that Willem Pijper wrote down when he was 24 years old. In Bruckner's Sixth Symphony, we enter a completely new world. A grand scale is set in motion here that was previously unknown to composers and audiences alike. All in all, a cathedral of tones lasting more than an hour and much longer than an average symphony by Mozart or Haydn.
