INTERMISSION

Anton Bruckner
Symphonie Nr. 5 B-Dur

Description

Anton Bruckner’s symphonies have often been described as cathedrals of sound. And they really do combine a powerful architecture of sound with soaring climaxes and visions of the transcendent. This also applies to the Fifth Symphony, which Bruckner called his “contrapuntal masterpiece” because of its ingenious compositional technique. Kirill Petrenko combines it with a work that also has a connection to sacred architecture: Wolfgang Rihm’s IN-SCHRIFT, whose dark, powerfully-sculpted sounds are inspired by St Mark’s Basilica in Venice.
