Bruckner: Mass In D Minor / Musica Sacra

Notes & Reviews:

It is with the D minor Mass that Bruckner's unmistakable style first made itself known. By the time it was completed in 1864, Bruckner was under the spell of Richard Wagner, his prior influences being Joseph and Michael Haydn. Though the mass is not overtly 'Wagnerian', as it is still based on a Haydnesque model, the exposure to Wagner unlocked in Bruckner a sense of individuality and daring that must have surprised his provincial circle. There is a sense of anguish in the music that on the basis of the early works appears to come from nowhere. This is a 2003 recording.
