In the anniversary year 2024, Bruckner’s D minor Mass, the first of his works in which the later symphonist’s personal signature is clearly recognisable, will be heard again at the place of its premiere, the Old Cathedral in Linz. But that is not all: some of the participants in this concert also have close links to Bruckner’s biography. The Hard Choir, for example, emerged from the Linz Liedertafel „Frohsinn“, which Anton Bruckner led as choir master from 1860 to 1861 and in 1868, and with which he premiered the final chorus of Richard Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. The male choir of former St. Florian Boys Choir, in turn, recalls that Bruckner’s own musical career began as a choirboy of this monastery, whose organist he later became and under whose organ he is buried. With the L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra under its founder Michi Gaigg, a top ensemble from Upper Austria and an important Upper Austrian conductor are also at work to pay homage to their great compatriot on his 200th birthday.
