Just like Haydn, Anton Bruckner came from the traditional world of choirboys and it almost seems as if Bruckner’s opening of the 5th symphony was inspired by Haydn’s slow introductions. Despite its considerable length and musical complexity, the symphony in B flat major never fails to mesmerise listeners.
One concert – two unique personalities. The lack of role models, traditions and well-trodden paths allows something new to emerge. “I was cut off from the world. There was nobody near me to drive me crazy or torment me, so I had to be original.” (Joseph Haydn)
