They call Bruckner’s symphonies ‘cathedrals in sound’, and it’s true – Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony contains some of the grandest and most beautiful sounds ever assembled, by a composer with a vision of another world. But hearing is believing, and anyone can be moved by this vast yet deeply touching masterpiece. Peter Oundjian loves it, and he’s paired it with something very different but equally beautiful – Mozart’s jubilant Piano Concerto No25. The perfect musical palate-cleanser!
