|Bruckner||Symphony No. 5|
The Fifth Symphony of the great Anton Bruckner is among his most intellectually rich works, and one that he never heard performed by an orchestra in his lifetime because he fell ill at the time of its premiere. It is celebrated for its thematic intricacy and for its brilliant conclusion. This piece is paired with a dazzling contemporary concerto, Aerial, by the Austrian composer HK Gruber – a sizzling tour de force for HSO Principal Trumpet Christopher Coletti.
