Bruckner's 'First

His own, highly individual symphonic style was first documented by Bruckner's Symphony No. 1 in C minor, premiered in Linz on May 9, 1868, with which the composer, already over 40 years old, set off into new worlds and confidently entered the musical field that he declared to be the most important for him: that of symphonic music. When he subjected the work to a fundamental revision from 1890 onwards, resulting in its "Viennese version", which the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra premiered on December 13, 1891 under the direction of Hans Richter, he affectionately and jokingly called it "das kecke Beserl" (the cheeky little fellow)

Although the Vienna Philharmonic was already closely associated with the composer during his lifetime thanks to these and other world premieres and is still one of the most important "Bruckner orchestras" in the world today, they have only recently released their first complete recording of all eleven symphonies under a single conductor: Christian Thielemann, who will also be conducting their concert at the International Bruckner Festival Linz 202 4.
