SYMPHONY CONCERT NO. 1

The Neubrandenburg Philharmonic Orchestra plays works by Robert Schumann and Anton Bruckner.

Soloists: Horn players of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin:
Bora Demir / Ozan Çakar / Antonio Adriani / Georg Pohle
Conductor: GMD Daniel Geiss

Robert Schumann: Concert piece for 4 horns and large orchestra in F major op. 86
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 in E major

To mark the 200th anniversary of Anton Bruckner's birth in September 2024, the symphony that brought the 60-year-old composer his long-awaited recognition will be performed in the opening concert of the new season.

Anton Bruckner is one of the great symphonists after Beethoven. His music was strongly influenced by Richard Wagner, among others. The register-like changes in tone color and chorale quotations testify to his mastery of the organ. Bruckner's powerful symphonies have often been compared to the soaring majesty of Gothic cathedrals.

 

The concert opens with a work that requires four outstanding wind soloists. Schumann wrote enthusiastically to his colleague Ferdinand Hiller on April 1, 1849: "I recently composed a concert piece for four horns with accompaniment by the large orchestra, which seems to me to be one of my best pieces."
