Program notes

Legendary conductor Herbert Blomstedt offers up a resolutely Romantic program that brings together Schubert and Bruckner, with the superb Bamberg Symphony at their home Konzerthalle! They begin the concert with Schubert's exuberant Symphony No. 3, suffused with light and levity, which calls to mind the verve and lyricism of Rossini. Maestro and ensemble finish off the festivities with Bruckner's "Romantic" Symphony No. 4, perhaps the most famous symphony by the celebrated Austrian composer, and a prime example of late Romanticism: imposing in its orchestral richness, staggering in its intensity and ardor.
