Conductor François-Xavier Roth, who has been highly esteemed by the Berlin Philharmonic for years, devotes himself to the imposing symphonic works of Bruckner and a new work by Vito Žura.
Roth has made a name for himself as a Bruckner interpreter who not only brings the sonic power of this music to life, but also its nuances.
The Third Symphony is considered Anton Bruckner’s problem child. The three versions of this hymn-like and at the same time mysterious work show how much the composer struggled with it.
François-Xavier Roth, conductor of this performance, considers the first version from 1873 to be the most successful – because it shows the original Bruckner.
The programme also includes the world premiere of a work by the Slovenian Vito Žuraj.
