Alexander Mickelthwate, conductor

Friday, March 9 - 8:00 pm

MAJESTIC Bruckner, woefully unsure of himself,worried that his music was insufficient in the eyes of God. He needn't have worried for his towering symphonies envelop the soul in tapestries of sound. The colour, harmony, and rhythm stretch the limits of Romanticism.
The epic majesty of Bruckner is set against the detail and precision of a Bach concerto featuring the WSO's own Gwen Hoebig and Karl Stobbe – a perfect setting to hear two of our city's most talented musicians.
