Boston Philharmonic Orchestra: Benjamin Zander Conducting Bruckner — Symphony No. 8

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Guide to the music with Benjamin Zander, 6:45pm.

To open the season, as we emerge from one of the darkest periods in recent American history, I turned, not to Beethoven, but to Bruckner: the Eighth, his greatest symphony. We had to come back in the grandest way possible. This work expresses great anguish but is finally about jubilation and love.
