Upper Austria was Anton Bruckner‘s home. He was born in Ansfelden in 1824, musically socialized, promoted, and trained at the monastery in the neighboring town of St. Florian. In Linz, he developed into an acclaimed organ improviser and a composer with an unmistakable tonal language. His music can be heard here today in the renowned concert hall that bears his name, it is played here by the orchestra named after him and is taught and researched here at a university whose namesake he gave.
His milestone birthday provides a welcome opportunity to jointly present Upper Austrian culture in all its diversity, which will find expression in numerous Bruckner-themed projects, on squares and at places, in villages and cities, all over Upper Austria.
