Initially, Ernest Bloch wanted to write a vocal work using texts of King Solomon. He finally decided to use the lyrical eloquence of the cello to proclaim the words of Solomon in this large-scale rhapsody. It is a highly expressive colourful work with an oriental flavour.
Anton Bruckner, who was often ridiculed as a man from the provinces, celebrated his first real success with his fourth symphony. The romantic, wistful horn motif at the start of the symphony is unforgettable.
