Our Daily Sykes #335 – Brucknerian Clouds


Here’s a familiar landscape in which the parts, the dark islands and roiling clouds, suggest a musical notation, a picturesque analogy for staffs of notes written across a page, with bass and treble clefs building a counterpoint of answering sounds like a Bruckner symphony – any of the eleven.   Today I listened to all in order and continuous.  So much hearing may also encourage seeing so.  Look there, right of center, its the opening to the fourth and final movement, Bewegt, feurig, of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 1 in C minor, the 1877 Linz version, as played by the Bavarian Radio Symphony in concert, 1999, Lorin Maazel conducting.
