Program Notes

An original work for winds and choir from a master of the late Romantic era, Bruckner's Messe E-Moll represents exceptional attention to drama, lyricism, and piety. The work reflects Bruckner's training in Renaissance polyphony as well as influences of his contemporaries. When programming such a monumental work, conductors should consider the need for academic research to maximize the musical references in the score and interpret them appropriately. This is certainly a special work that deserves careful planning and execution.
