Symphony No.6 in A major
Excerpt:Adagio. Sehr feierlich
Premiered in Vienna on 26 February 1899 under the direction of Gustav Mahler, Bruckner’s Sixth Symphony was never altered or revised by its composer, which shows his exceptional confidence in it. He was, indeed, especially proud of its compositional audacities, and nicknamed it Die Keckste (‘the cheekiest’). Right from its first performance it attracted attention for its visionary beauty.
This title was released for the first time in 2005.
