Donald Runnicles conducts Bruckner Symphony No.7
The Guiding Light: Music of Inspiration

You don’t listen to a Bruckner symphony, you inhabit it. Donald Runnicles is our guide in Bruckner’s expansive – yet accessible – Seventh.

Intoxicating, enveloping and vast, Anton Bruckner’s symphonies are cathedrals of sound. Within these spaces, shadows and shafts of glorious light play and Bruckner’s Seventh is the perfect introduction. It has the time-stopping beauty that defines his music – the long, arching melodies and triumphant climaxes – in a more accessible package.

Donald Runnicles is one of the great Bruckner conductors and a passionate advocate for this rewarding music.

Messiaen’s ardent and ecstatic ‘Forgotten Offerings’ is his orchestral opus one – and, like Bruckner’s music, it points to the infinite in freely floating, iridescent curls of sound.
