Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the Rafael Payare and the Lyricism of Bruckner concert — scheduled on January 12 and 13, 2022 — has been postponed until May 10 and 11, 2022. Ticket holders are asked keep their ticket(s), which will be honoured at the venue entrance.
Bruckner ranks with Brahms as one of the greatest symphonists of the late 19th century. His Symphony no. 7 is a true masterpiece of lyricism enriched by accents of heroism, and has been unanimously acclaimed since its premiere in Leipzig in 1884, also sparking Bruckner’s enduring fame. The work’s atmospheres and use of Wagner tubas – a first – combine in a tribute to the great Richard Wagner. Maestro Payare conducts the OSM in this performance of one of Bruckner’s most celebrated symphonies.
