ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Lively peasant festivals, knights on horseback, merry hunting scenes and mist-shrouded forests—all are evoked in the sweeping sonorities of Bruckner’s Fourth, which draws as its inspiration the imagery of medieval romance. The Symphony gave its composer one of the greatest triumphs of his career when first premiered and was proclaimed an “extraordinary musical creation.” Former Houston Symphony Music Director Christoph Eschenbach—an acclaimed Bruckner interpreter—returns to Jones Hall in a concert that also features fiery and fearless virtuoso Leila Josefowicz in a concerto written specially for her.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
