Bruckner's music failed to be accepted in Vienna during his lifetime. But his Eighth Symphony has come to be known as the ‘the crown of 19th-century music’, with many viewing it as the very peak of the 19th-century symphonic genre. The context and interpretation of the work is explored through this programme and it concludes with a performance of the work by the German Symphony Orchestra, Berlin.
