    No attempt on my part to besmirch the reputation of Herr Bruckner......the fact that we are still listening and talking about him 150 years later speaks for itself. I am a history buff and like to get the sense of an individual, that's all. I did enjoy the episode where he tipped the conductor like he was a waiter. The apparent disconnect between his life and work makes him more interesting to me.

    No worries from my perspective -- I'm not a huge Bruckner fan. I view him as the transitional step into madness ( Mahler), but not the cause.

    Madness indeed.........fortunately, Bruckner hangs out in the Solid State forum and won't see this exchange......

    Madness, compared to some of the death metal, these old Classical masters have nothing on these new guys.

    Before I disconnected my cable tv service permanently, 7 years ago, I recorded about 9 hours of "Classical Light" from Comcast's On Demand-Music Choice playlist. The cassette tape (#5) I played today had; J. Labor, J.C. Bach, Scarlatti, Dvorak, Bach, Schumann, Telemann, Pachelbel, Taileferre, Heinlichen, Mozart and Chopin.

    Welcome to the thread! I have a summer house in the Bar Harbor area ( a flatlander from away! ).

    Brunswick stands out in my mind because 20 years ago or so you had an excellent German restaurant ( whose name escapes me) that my wife and I would find a reason to dine in whenever we were anywhere close to you.

    I disagree with the idea of Bruckner´s music being "bland". Moments like the demoniac scherzo of the 9th symphony, the devastating climax of the 1st movement of the 8th symphony or the towering fugue in the last movement of the 5th symphony tell me of a universe completely removed from being "bland". Besides that, the word "talented" (only that?) perhaps is there if you don´t have a look at the harmonic progression of Bruckner´s symphonies. In the Adagio (last completed movement) of the 9th symphony, there is for the first time in music a dissonat chrord in fortissimo that is as close to a cluster as it could ever be in the XIX century (Mahler wrote a complete one in the Adagio of his 10th symphony, but many years later). Another great harmonic resource in Bruckner´s music is to be found in the most original modulations acceptable within the realms of tonality (a progression that started with the Mozart of the "Great Mass", followed with Schubert and matured with Bruckner). On the formal developments of Bruckner, the idea of expanding the sonata form with more than two themes is also a great and original one, taken later on by Sibelius and Nielsen, among other XXth century composers.
