Conductor, Carlos Domínguez-Nieto (musical director Orquesta de Córdoba)


Anton Bruckner and the symphony of faith

The Orquesta Joven de Andalucia (OJA) marked its 25th anniversary in 2019, an ensemble characterized by its precocious technical qualities and the musical passion it communicates to a well-established audience who, year after year, enjoy the annual concert at the Teatro de la Maestranza. Carlos Domínguez-Nieto (Madrid, 1972) will conduct. At the beginning of a brilliant career, he led youth ensembles: towards the end of the 90s, he was Assistant Director of the National Youth Orchestra of Spain (JONDE) and the Youth Orchestra of Munich. He has been the Chief Conductor of the Chamber Orchestra of Munich, and from 2009-2015, he was Chief Conductor and General Director of Music at the Landestheater in Eisenach. Along with having conducted numerous important international orchestras, since the end of 2018, Domínguez-Nieto has been the Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Orquesta de Córdoba in Spain.

For the Easter Concert in Sevilla, the OJA has chosen a monumental work, the Seventh Symphony of Anton Bruckner (1824 –1896), a profoundly Catholic composer who converted this work -composed between 1881 and 1883, of which there are three published versions dedicated to King Ludwig II of Bavaria- , in a sort of “in memoriam” to Richard Wagner, whom the King protected and considered a close friend. Wagner’s death inspired the most beautiful and breathtaking Adagio lento e maestoso, one of the most desolate movements in the history of symphonic music. At the same time, however, it is also one of the most sensual, a duality which Franz Lizst called “Troubadour of God” and that Paul Henry Lang described as “medieval Catholic thrown into the turbulent world of Wagner”.

The Seventh Symphony, dating to the same period of the “Te Deum”, was influenced by another very impressive piece of sacred music: Wagner’s “Parsifal”. Bruckner saw the opera at the Festival of Bayreuth when he had already begun composing this celebrated symphony. Around 65 minute’s duration, it was first heard in Leipzig on December 30, 1884 under the legendary conductor Arthur Nikisch and the Gewandhaus Orchestra. It was a benefit concert for the erection of a monument to Wagner and it was this symphony that would bring Bruckner the approval and acceptance he had not known until then.

The Seventh Symphony, along with the Fourth, is the most admired work by Bruckner, a composer who was driven by a deeply-felt Christian faith, “unwavering” and “still puerile”, something “atypical” in the secularised XIX century, in the words of theologian Hans Küng. Bruckner. His astonishing score accents “the discrepancy between naive religiosity and the most complex of music imaginable”.
