The concert finishes at approximately 10pm

On 8 December 1881, Anton Bruckner looked from the window of his Vienna apartment as the Ringtheater burned to the ground, taking 386 audience members to their graves. The experience shook Bruckner to his very core, and made its way into the strange unease of his Seventh Symphony’s scherzo. It’s redemption, though, the redemption witnessed by Bruckner inside the theatre attending performances of Wagner’s opera Parsifal, powered this symphony on.
