Bruckner, Symphony No. 7 in E major

03:30-04:44

The performance of all six of Anton Bruckner's mature symphonies on six nearly consecutive evenings is an accomplishment that can truly be called "superhuman" (Der Tagesspiegel).

What Barenboim and his orchestra - he has been its principal conductor since 1992 - achieve in this marathon is a new view of the Bruckner opus that opts for grandeur and the mighty theatrical gesture. Bruckner's symphonies as "operas without words" (Der Tagesspiegel).

For him, Mozart is "the most romantic composer of all", his music "dramatic, dynamic, often strikingly and exceedingly emotional".
