Information about the programme

Bruckner would not write the Fifth Symphony again “even for one thousand guilders”. He had struggled with the work for two and a half years, improving it in small details and revising large sections, such as in the Finale, multiple times. Compared to some of his other symphonies, there is only one version of the Fifth authorized by Bruckner himself. And although he desperately wanted to hear this work in the grand setting of a concert hall, his wish was never fulfilled. Christian Thielemann, an internationally recognized specialist for the German Romantic repertoire, will emphasize the work’s monumental character.
