Anton Bruckner in Micheldorf

In 1879 Bruckner climbs - partly carried by friends - Burg Altpernstein. Prayer in the chapel. Great curiosity during the guided tour of the castle. Desire for a trial arrest in the dungeon.

Events in Micheldorf

When he was a guest in Kirchdorf, the composer liked to undertake excursions in the surrounding area, including (probably in 1879) to Burg Altpernstein (castle).

There are several anecdotes about a visit to the castle. It was difficult for Bruckner  to negotiate the steep castle path and in part he was 'carried by angels' (sitting on the clasped hands of his companions).
Bruckner wished to be locked up in the castle dungeons (the 'rock dungeons'). The agony of 'imprisonment' moved him greatly and upon his susequent release he is said to have sung Resurrexit ! ('He is risen!'). Anyone who is so inclined can have themselves locked up and then record  their impressions in musical notation. During the Jazz Days on 4 and 5 July, these musical templates will undergo improvisation.

Meeting point at Neupernstein Castle at 11:00 am
Stop for refreshments and listening along the way
Concert in the Knights' Hall at 14:00 with chamber music on 'Kirchdorf's  Steinway grand piano'.

Refreshments will  be provided at the castle.
