Bach, Srnka, Bruckner

The Gürzenich Orchestra under F.X. Roth

A beginning that was well ahead of its time. In his first symphony, Anton Bruckner was already looking forward into a distant future. The opening of the first movement could easily have been written by Mahler, and is soon followed by passages that resemble Bruckner's later work. The forms he uses resemble building blocks of the kind his fellow organist Bach used in his 3rd Brandenburg Concerto. The harpsichord – which Bach saw merely as an "accompaniment instrument" – stands in the foreground in Miroslav Srnka's new work. He composed the work for a soloist "whose music making and very being resonate just as much the pieces he plays". A concert about what went unfulfilled in the past, and promises for the future. All led by the Gürzenich's chief conductor François-Xavier Roth, with his highly infectious sense of curiosity.
