Symphony Concert

Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Anton Bruckner

The Concert Programme

Experiences of death and downfall are the subject of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s “Songs of Farewell”. Written in 1920/21 shortly after he’d finished his best-known opera, THE DEAD CITY, the four songs give the impression of being not only an epilogue to the latter work but also the composer’s own response to the carnage of the First World War and the fall of the House of Habsburg. For the Symphony Concert of the Deutsche Oper Berlin Donald Runnicles juxtaposes Korngold’s song cycle with a prime example of Viennese symphony music in the High Romanticism tradition, Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No.7, the work that, on the occasion of its world premiere in 1884, provided Bruckner with his international breakthrough as a composer of symphonies.
