Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto was at first deemed unplayable, but those who have mastered the demanding soloist’s part have brought to life the effortless flow of lyrical themes and Russian- inspired folk melodies that delight the listener. Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, which was not completed before his death, uses ever higher climatic peaks, multiple key changes and Wagner-inspired orchestration to create a vast musical monument and soul-expanding grandeur. Conductor Bruno Walter wrote of Bruckner, “Even though he may not follow a strictly planned path to his goal, he takes us over ways strewn with abundant riches, affording us views of constantly varying delight.”
