Classic Intro - 6.15pm, Music Room
Stephen Johnson, classical music writer, composer and broadcaster talks about Bruckner’s Symphony No.4 ‘Romantic’Could this be the loveliest opening to any symphony ever? The air shimmers, a horn calls softly from the mists, and Anton Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony opens the door onto an enchanting new world. No wonder they call it ‘The Romantic’, but there’s thunder amongst the mountain peaks too, and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze is the perfect guide to Bruckner’s epic musical landscape. Haydn’s Symphony No.90 gets the journey started in a sunburst of energy and wit.
