Anton Bruckner Museum Ansfelden

The Anton Bruckner Museum in Ansfelden is a symbolic place dedicated to the life and work of the famous composer and musician Anton Bruckner. As the birthplace of the artist, it preserves the memory of his musical legacy and his deep roots in Upper Austrian culture. Visitors have the opportunity to admire Bruckner's personal items and clothing, musical instruments and manuscripts, which offer an insight into his creative work and everyday life. The historic building reflects the rural surroundings and the time in which Bruckner lived. It is an inspiring place that attracts not only music lovers, but also historians and culture enthusiasts.
On the occasion of the Upper Austrian KulturEXPO, the permanent exhibition in Bruckner's birthplace was adapted and supplemented with numerous originals, including his famous portrait painting by Hermann Kaulbach, as well as contemporary artistic interpretations. Visitors also have the opportunity to talk to Anton Bruckner personally about God and the world or his music.

David Wagner is collecting audio donations of short motifs from the 9 Bruckner symphonies on video from the residents of the streets, alleys, paths and squares throughout Upper Austria once frequented by Bruckner. He is using them to create a 9-minute compilation of footage that depicts a representative cross-section of Bruckner's creative symphonic work. He has the support of a randomly generated cross-section of the population from the entire state of Upper-Austria.

In this way 72 short videos are produced. The actual "performance" is filmed as is the journey itself, making contact with the people, the rehearsals and various "making of" scenes. These are then edited to make a film which also lasts for around 9 minutes.

Just like Anton Bruckner, David Wagner navigates his way through the countryside without the need for an engine. With a velocipede as his means of transport, he reaches all of the 72 stations on his Bruckner Road Tour without generating any CO2 thus ensuring that the spirit of Bruckner, which still hovers above the land above the River Enns, remains undisturbed by  pollutants .

David Wagner is also happy to have fellow cyclists along for the ride, who make one or two of the 1,500 kilometers through Upper Austria easier for him.

Cycle with David Wagner from Linz to Ansfelden:
→ START at 14:30 on the main square in Linz
→ 16:00, Anton Bruckner Centrum, Carl-Anton-Carlone-Straße 2, Ansfelden
→ 5:00 pm, Anton-Bruckner-Straße, Ansfelden
→ 18:00, Anton Bruckner Birthplace, Augustinerstraße 3, Ansfelden

The fact that you can get art from a vending machine just like chewing gum, snacks or drinks is no longer something entirely new. However, the inventor of the art vending machine, Helene Huemer, fills it with sculptures, medals, scrolls and drawings as well as comics in the style of Bruckner. The machine is now going on tour through Upper Austria and demands to be filled again and again by creative people. There is a hands-on table for both the young and old where YOU can give your creativity free rein. Get in on the art: model, stamp, draw, write poetry and let us teleport Anton Bruckner, the organ rock star, into the here and now. Insert a 2 euro coin, spin it and plop! You will be rewarded with a surprise such as an original work of art from regional & international artists or from one of the participants.

The workshop is accessible for those with impaired mobility.

This event takes place as part of Mostkost.

We are addressed wordlessly by symphonic music and in the same way by dance. And yet in the former, art is expressed merely audibly and in the latter, predominantly visibly. Approaching Anton Bruckner's 9th Symphony, for Compositional transfer inbodied "I ANTON" we worked on a translation method with the help of which musical structures can be brought from the time filled with sounds into the space filled with movements. Thus, this performance does not merely dance to the music or its mood, but rather repeats its forms even in the physical realm, and even attempts to dance with Anton beyond the unfinished end by means of the movements that develop from it.

The striking similarity between a recurring theme from Bruckner's Fifth Symphony and a guitar riff by the White Stripes - in their song, the Seven Nation Army - is the godmother of this ten-piece electric guitar ensemble. In this field of tension between high culture, popular culture and avant-garde, the collective dedicates itself to this very riff. In essence, this is less a case of "stealing the stolen" or an act of appropriation but rather a recuperation. Experimental surfaces of sound encounter incisive repetitions of the Bruckner riff in variations and with subtle shifts. The result is a a monstrous sound aesthetic, a hybrid of Anton Bruckner, the White Stripes and the loud electric guitar symphonist, Glenn Branca.

A concert for Bruckner's 200th birthday in Ansfelden. Since 2018, the International Bruckner Festival Linz has commenced every year on 4 September, the birthday of its namesake. The birthday concert to kick off the festival always takes place in Ansfelden, the place where it all began for Anton Bruckner: it was here that he was born in the servants' quarters of the school building and then baptised on the very same day in the neighbouring parish church.

In 2024, the well-wishers could hardly be more prominent: The Cleveland Orchestra, known as the "most European" of the US orchestras, and its chief conductor, Franz Welser-Möst, who hails from Linz, will do the honours and pay tribute to the jubilarian with an open-air performance in the area between the parish church and the courtyard.

By rocking and seesawing together, different organ pipes are operated - a sound space unfolds on the organ playground that makes Anton Bruckner audible and tangible in both an abstract and playful way.
The organ will be set up in 2024 in various locations with a Bruckner connection.

"Happy birthday, Anton!" - Concert for Bruckner's 200th birthday in Ansfelden

Since 2018, the 4 September has marked the beginning of the International Bruckner Festival Linz, on the birthday of its namesake. The birthday concert to kick off the festival always takes place in Ansfelden, the place where it all began for Anton Bruckner. It was here that he was born in the servants' quarters of the school building and here that he was baptised in the parish church nearby on the very same day.

In 2024, well-wishers for this milestone birthday are justifiably of a prominent nature: The Cleveland Orchestra, known as the most "European" of the US American orchestras, and its chief conductor, Franz Welser-Möst, who hails from Linz, will do the honours and pay tribute to the jubilarian. An open-air performance will be held in the space between the parish church and the courtyard.

Following the prelude and "Isolde's Liebestod" from Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde, the nocturne par excellence, in tune with the open-air venue, will be Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 in E flat major. This was his first in a major key and it is one of the composer's most comprehensible and therefore most popular works. He himself named it theRomantic and this name paired with the many references to this have added to this. This applies in particular to the "1878/80 version" a highlight depicting nature in a variety of tones in the newly composed third movement. It became famous under the nickname "Jagd-Scherzo" . Its premiere on 20 February 1881 by the Vienna Philharmonic led by Hans Richter was a great success and represented an important 'stage victory' for Bruckner on his way to becoming a recognised symphonist.

Franz Armbruster, a theater painter, analyzes the characters of actors and singers as well as their roles in drawings. He was also particularly interested in the musicians, who are invisible in the orchestra pit but make a significant contribution to musical theater. Armbruster used a technique in which he captured various aspects simultaneously on paper and whisked them into a harmonious whole. Powerful condensations alternate with loose lines to create tension and physicality. The underlying musical notation encourages the "cooperation" of the viewer. The cycle and calendar were presented at the Bruckner Haus in 1989, as the basic sheet music was taken from Bruckner works and the musicians were members of the Bruckner Orchestra. Armbruster used copies of sheet music as a background for a lithograph cycle from which the present calendar was created.

Her works, on the one hand an examination of the world around us, and on the other the exploration of the spectrum of pictorial design through the textile medium, enable a journey through a world of images that constantly opens up anew depending on the angle of view and spatial proximity.
