Monumental emotion

Often compared to a Gothic catedral, the Seventh Symphony of Anton Bruckner (1824–1896) is one of those musical experiences where nobility and monumentalism transmit an expressive profoundity which submerges the listener in a sort of musical trance, particularily in the Adagio, a funereal hymn to the memory of Wagner for whom Bruckner felt devotion, of a subjugating lyrical warmth.

Composed between 1881 and 1883 and corrected and edited in different versions, the Seventh, with its lenghty development in its nearly 70 minutes, is an enveloping work of plasticity , robust but not petrous, that puts any orchestra to the test. The Orquesta Joven de Andalucía (Youth Orchestra of Andalusia), with its proven quality and ambition, faces the challenge led by Carlos Domínguez-Nieto (Madrid, 1972) a conductor of ample training and experience who is presently Musical Director of the Orchestra of Cordoba.
