Program Notes

These three lovely pieces were originally composed by Anton Bruckner in 1836 for the organ. Best known for his symphonies and choral works, Bruckner also composed a small amount of organ music, which, although much small in scale than the symphonies or the masses, nevertheless contains many of the stylistic traits of his mature works. The music of Anton Bruckner is deeply spiritual, achieving a transcendent expressive power through the simplest of technical means.

The organ pieces adapt quite readily to the symphonic band idiom; no transpositions have been necessary nor has any recomposition of the original material been required. The scoring is designed to evoke the typical Bruckner symphonic sound, with a special emphasis on horns and low brass.
