Anton Bruckner's symphonies are a great achievement of the Romantic era. To Bruckner, music was a celebration of symmetry; his symphonies are like works of Gothic architecture in their grandeur, and in them he captured the cultural atmosphere of the Austro-Hungarian empire.Bruckner was desperately unsure of his abilities and revised his works repeatedly; his lack of social graces hampered him in the pursuit of respect and honor; his romantic life was a series of embarrassments. But the center of his life was a deep religious faith, reflected in his music and its range of emotions from terror to ecstasy. -- Includes Bruckner's complete life story and commentary on his works -- The ideal single-volume introduction to Bruckner.
