International Brucknerfest Linz 2024



The program of the International Bruckner Festival Linz 2024 was presented at a press conference on 5 October 2023. It is entirely dedicated to Anton Bruckner, whose 200th birthday we will be celebrating on September 4, 2024. Under the motto "Infinite expanses. Bruckner's work as a reach for the stars" a unique and one-of-a-kind concert series.

Alongside many world stars and orchestras such as Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra, Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic, Markus Poschner and the Bruckner Orchester Linz, Michi Gaigg and the L'Orfeo Baroque Orchestra, Thomas Hengelbrock and the Munich Philharmonic, star tenor Thomas Hampson and the celebrated sopranos Christiane Karg and Julia Lezhneva, the exceptional pianist Marc-André Hamelin, and the internationally renowned Tenebrae Choir under the direction of Nigel Short, the International Brucknerfest Linz 2024 offers a true world sensation in the anniversary year of Anton Bruckner's 200th birthday. This is a true world sensation:
For the first time in the world, all eleven of Bruckner's symphonies will be performed as a complete cycle in their original sound as part of the festival, a furious musical voyage of discovery that will only be heard at the Brucknerhaus Linz and exclusively in Austria. The symphonies will always be heard in their first version and thus in the form that Bruckner originally intended for each work. The specially conceived, programmed and prominently cast concert series guarantees a unique listening experience, a true festival of original sound, which only the Bruckner-city of Linz has to offer in the Bruckner-Year 2024 and which will be performed by eleven of the most renowned original sound orchestras in Europe under the direction of eleven renowned conductors.
