First concert of 2022: Bruckner’s 9th Symphony in Madrid

Pablo Heras-Casado will conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid, Orquesta Titular del Teatro Real, to conduct Anton Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony next January 11, at the Auditorio Nacional de Música. Heras-Casado continues with his commitment to complete Bruckner’s symphonies project, which he has conducted so far the First, Second, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Symphonies of the Austrian composer. Bruckner began composing what would be his last symphony in 1887, who would only finish the first three movements. Bruckner’s Ninth was published and first performed in 1903, seven years after the composer’s death. This concert is a preview of performances of Richard Wagner’s Götterdämmerung, the final work of The Ring of the Nibelung tetralogy.
