Internationales BrucknerFest 24 with Adam Fischer

We're honoured to be part of the annual programme in this anniversary year at the concert hall named after Bruckner in his home city.
Linz, Brucknerhaus €10 - €88 Info & Tickets

Opened in 1974 on the banks of the Danube, the Brucknerhaus stands as a living monument to the composer. For this year’s BrucknerFest, marking both the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth and the venue’s own 50th, join forces with Adam Fischer for a compelling pairing of Brucker’s Symphony No. 5 with Mozart’s Requiem.

Bruckner considered Mozart’s Requiem to be a central work throughout his life and was an important reference point for his own church music. What is less well known, however, is that it served as a blueprint and a source of motifs for his Fifth Symphony. In addition to a literal quotation of the phrase “Qua resurget ex favilla, Iudicandus homo reus”  from the ‘Lacrymosa’  in the second movement of the symphony, almost all the themes of all four movements of the work refer to the Requiem.

Performers include Fenja Lukas (soprano), Michaela Selinger (mezzo-soprano), Joao Terleira (tenor), Alexandre Baldo (bass) and Ad Libitum choir.


We open our 2024-25 Southbank Centre season performing Bruckner’s Symphony No. 5 with Adam Fischer on Sunday 13 October.
