Symphony No. According to Robert Simpsonthough not commonly performed and often thought of as the ugly duckling of Bruckner's symphonic body of work, the symphony nonetheless makes an immediate impression of rich and individual expressiveness: "Its themes are exceptionally beautiful, its harmony has moments of both boldness and subtlety, its instrumentation is the most imaginative he had yet achieved, and it possesses a mastery of classical form that might even have impressed Brahms.
By the time Bruckner began composing his Symphony No. The recent premiere of his Third Symphony had been nothing short of disastrous, receiving an extremely negative, though not surprising review from Eduard Hanslickgiven Hanslick's predilection for the works of Brahms. Instead of a critique, therefore, we would rather simply confess that we have not understood his gigantic symphony. Neither were his poetic intentions clear to us The composer The composition of his Symphony No.
It has even been dubbed the Philosophical symphony by critics for this reason. Bruckner's symphonies encompass many techniques but the one unwavering hallmark of his symphonic compositions is a singular formal pattern that underwent very little variation over the course of his symphonic repertory.
In fact, their four extended movements are indebted to the structure and thematic treatment in the late works of Beethoven. Thematically speaking, there are two distinct varieties of themes in Bruckner's symphonies. First, there are themes that are clearly defined in shape and then there are the themes that operate more as motives with a shorter length and a more open-ended shape, as is typical of the Sixth Symphony. Other characteristics that are found in Bruckner's symphonies especially the Sixth include the extensive treatment of the dominant 2nd Movt.: Largo - Dvorak* - Leopold Ludwig Conducts The London Symphony Orchestra - Symphony No.
5 chord as a German sixth chord in a new key, usage of cadences as a decisive factor in daring modulations, the treatment of organ points as pivotal to the harmony and structure, chains of harmonic sequences, and, most notably, extensive use of rhythmic motives, especially the characteristic Bruckner rhythma rhythm consisting of two fourths and three quarter notes, or vice versa.
The orchestration of the Sixth Symphony complies with Bruckner's customary, albeit peculiar, techniques. Just as in his other symphonic works, there are no marks 2nd Movt.: Largo - Dvorak* - Leopold Ludwig Conducts The London Symphony Orchestra - Symphony No.
5 extreme virtuosity apparent in the score and the lines are straightforward. Bruckner commonly alternates between solo and tutti sections, as well as layering instruments to provide texture and show different subject groups.
Bruckner labels this movement "Majestoso", not the conventional "Maestoso", probably from his Latin from "Maiestas" — sovereign power. The movement, in obvious sonata formopens with the characteristic 'Bruckner rhythm' played in the violins, though Bruckner is careful to maintain the enigmatic atmosphere by indicating a bowing that keeps the bow on the string and therefore prohibits the rhythmic figure from becoming too lively. The counterstatement of the theme appears bar 25 in fortissimoa long-established classical technique that Bruckner had yet to use at the beginning of a symphony.
The second theme group is more complex than the primary theme. The first theme of this group is a confident melody in the violins in which Bruckner employs mixed rhythms: . The second theme in this group, an expressive, lyrical motif bar 69 is first heard in D majorclosely followed by a statement in F major and a richly Moving - Kate Bush - The Kick Inside statement in E majorthe dominant of the movement's original A major.
The third theme group, beginning with a militaristic statement of the Bruckner rhythm, now appears, followed by modulations ending in the dominant E major and segueing into the development section: . The development is shorter and less complex than one usually finds in Bruckner's symphonic first movements; however, it plays a substantial role in the overall harmonic structure of the movement.
From the outset barthe violins play an inversion of the main theme, though the Bruckner rhythm that accompanied it in the exposition is absent. The beginning of the recapitulation is, in fact, a climax, serving as both the end of the development and the beginning of the recapitulation, marking the first time in symphonic literature that this has occurred.
An exultant final statement of that theme and the completion of a massive plagal cadence signal the end of the first movement. The second movement is in obvious sonata form, the only example of a sonata structure Adagio in Bruckner's symphonies, apart from that of the "nullified" Symphony in D minor  and the early draft of the Adagio of the First Symphonydating from The dotted rhythm in its first bar calls to mind the oboe lament from the beginning of the movement.
There is a brief developmental section bar 69 that includes modulation on the primary theme as well as inversions of the oboe lament. There is a recapitulation of all three themes bar 93 though the orchestration is different, with the former violin theme primary theme now appearing in the horn and subsequently in the woodwinds. The second theme is recapitulated in its entirety in the tonic followed by a very short reappearance of the third theme.
Finally, a transition over a dominant pedal a Bruckner Psalms* - Give Some Love leads to the Coda that Simpson referred to as the fine-drawn consolatory coda that is one of Bruckner's best.
The A minor third movement is unlike any other composed by Bruckner; it is slower than usual and the tense character often associated with his Scherzi is often shadowed and muted, although there are movements of brilliance. There is a certain degree of harmonic ambiguity throughout, but nothing that compares to the opening of the first movement.
One of the most fascinating features of the harmonic structure is Bruckner's avoidance of a root position tonic chord for much of the movement. The dominant of A minor is reached bar 75 and here, the recapitulation begins, once again over a dominant pedal. It is important to note that there has still not been a root chord of A minor.
This elusive A minor root chord finally appears at the end of the recapitulation leading into the C major Trio Conrad Schnitzler - DictaCon (Microcassette, Album). In fact, this dialogue between pizzicato strings, horn and woodwinds is central to the texture of the whole Trio section.
Although the key is C major, there are moments of harmonic ambiguity, as in the preceding movements. Watson characterized the Finale as a steady, organic assertion of A major against its Neapolitan relatives. The horns and trumpets interrupt with statements in A major bar 22 but the theme is undeterred; four bars later they once again interrupt the theme and this time succeed in establishing A major bar A second theme in C major eventually appears:. This is followed by a third theme bar that is derived from the oboe lament of the second movement:.
The Coda once again encompasses a broad range of keys and juxtaposes the primary theme with the main theme from the first movement. This is the only Bruckner symphony exempt from any revisions by the composer. The Fifth, Sixth and Seventh represent Bruckner's period of confidence as a composer and, along with the unfinished Ninth, are as a group the symphonies he did not extensively revise. This edition did encompass a few minute changes from Bruckner's original, including the repetition of the second half of the Trio in the third movement.
The next edition appeared only infrom Robert Haas under Internationale Bruckner-Gesellschaft auspices. In Leopold Nowakwho took over Haas's job, published an edition that was a replicate of Bruckner's original score. The version of the Sixth performed under the direction of Mahler for the premiere was never published;  Mahler had made substantial changes to the whole score before that performance, of course unsanctioned by the deceased Bruckner.
Criticism of Bruckner's Symphony No. Whereas Bruckner considered his Sixth Symphony to be his "boldest symphony," it was not generally held in high regard. Hanslick, as usual, was without a doubt the harshest critic of them all. He was once quoted as saying, "whom I wish to destroy shall be destroyed," and Bruckner seems to have been a prime target. It has become ever harder for me personally to achieve a proper relationship with these peculiar compositions in which clever, original, and even inspired moments alternate frequently without recognizable connection with barely understandable platitudes, empty and dull patches, stretched out over such unsparing length as to threaten to run players as well as listeners out of breath.
Here, Hanslick touched on the most common complaint about Bruckner's symphonic writing: the seemingly endless journey to a conclusion of musical thought. Dyneley Hussey critiqued the Sixth Symphony in a review for The Musical Times and reached the same conclusions half a century later, writing:.
His most tiresome habit is his way of pulling up dead at frequent intervals, and then starting the argument all over again One has the impression Harsh critical reception of the Sixth Symphony, as well as his entire body of work, can also be attributed to critical reception of Bruckner as a person. He was a devout Catholic whose religious fervor often had a negative effect on those he encountered.

Donald Tovey wrote, " Carl Hruby wrote that Bruckner once said that if he were to speak to Beethoven about bad critiques Beethoven would say, "My dear Bruckner, don't bother yourself about it.
