Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
In many ways, Haydn and Bruckner might appear to be polar opposites. Haydn possessed a natural music talent, while Bruckner was a late bloomer. Haydn was a self-assured professional who wrote music for weddings and parties just as easily as he did for great noblemen, while Bruckner plodded along laboriously, often plagued by feelings of insecurity. But despite their many differences, both men produced outstanding music, as can be seen in this concert program.
