Brahms Tragic Overture
Rott Scherzo from Symphony in E
Bruckner Symphony No. 6

Sir Simon Rattle conductor

Our Principal artist Sir Simon Rattle returns for new musical adventures, joining the 30th birthday celebrations to conduct another OAE first – Bruckner.

Music written or performed in Vienna in 1880 makes up this programme.After Brahms’ turbulent overture, we perform an interesting rarity – the Mahler-like Scherzo from Hans Rott’s Symphony. An organ pupil of Bruckner, he was described by Mahler as “the founder of the New Symphony as I see it” but died at just twenty-five years old. Bruckner called his sixth symphony one of his boldest works. Its four movements seem to flow from a single source of inspiration and contain some of the loveliest music he wrote

OAE Extras at 5.45pm, auditorium, free admission
