MUSICIAN PROJECT ORCHESTRA RETURNS TO THE CON WITH SOME CLASSIC BRUCKNER

The Musician Project Orchestra returns to Verbrugghen Hall in September, to present a performance of Bruckner’s magnificent Third Symphony.

Widely considered the first work in which Bruckner’s unmistakable musical language fully blossoms. The work also demonstrates his special relationship to Wagner. Bruckner visited Wagner in September 1873, offering to dedicate either his Second or Third Symphony to him.

It turned out to be a very convivial meeting and the beer flowed freely. So much so that on his return home, Bruckner realised to his horror that he could not remember which of the symphonies the master had chosen. An exchange of letters clarified the situation: Wagner had chosen the Third, something which was no great surprise, as Bruckner had incorporated diverse Wagner quotes in the work. The concert opens with Wagner’s delicate & peaceful birthday gift to his wife: the Siegfried Idyll.

Returning to the podium will be our Artistic Director, the peerless Max McBride.

DATE FOR THE DIARY
September 30 2017 AT 7pm at the Verbrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium Of Music,
