Notes & Reviews:
Rarely did the premiere of a Bruckner symphony arouse such enthusiasm; even if, in this case, the first performance took place nearly twenty years after its composition. The work captivated listeners with its ineffable mystery (one thinks of late Beethoven), combining 'Baroque' logic with Romantic introspection. Parting company with Wagner, Bruckner had clearly found his own unique musical voice.
