Bruckner Symphony 6
Posted by John Proffitt on April 9, 2019, 12:19 am
The recent review of the new Robin Ticciati recording of Bruckner Symphony 6 contains this statement: “It is also apparently the symphony that Bruckner found the easiest to compose, as it is the only one to have not undergone a protracted gestation and features no amendments or revisions by the composer.” This is not correct. All three middle-period symphonies — 5, 6, and 7 — were written in a contiguous period of time without ‘protracted gestation’ and all three exist in one, and only one, autograph manuscript.
