Open Working Rehearsal: Staatskapelle Berlin
The late 18th century sinfonia concertante—a work for multiple solo instruments and orchestra—found unparalleled eloquence and virtuosity in Mozart’s hands. While Mozart’s work charms, Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony awes with its sweeping emotional breadth. The symphony is a gorgeous, superbly crafted masterpiece where drama and soaring lyricism are combined. Opening mysteriously, dancing robustly in its Scherzo, and culminating in a jubilant finale, its second-movement Adagio is a breathtaking tribute to Wagner.
