In the organizer's words:
Bruckner's Sixth Symphony has long been one of the composer's underrated works. According to Sir Simon Rattle, this is because it does not fulfill the usual expectations of a Bruckner symphony. It is shorter, more transparent and less pathetic than usual, "a piece full of humor and daring." Bruckner himself seems to have seen it that way, for he whimsically said that the Sixth was his "sauciest." To open the program, Simon Rattle conducts the world premiere of a horn concerto written by Jörg Widmann, composer in residence for the season, for our principal horn Stefan Dohr.
