Let's come together this Saturday night to hear two symphonies which have very special stories behind them.

Programme
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Symphony No. 33 in B-flat Major, K. 319

Bruckner
Symphony No. 6 in A Major, WAB Protected content

In the autumn of Protected content , at the age of 21, Mozart went to Mannheim, Munich and Paris on the advice of his father, looking for new work, but was repeatedly rejected. Due to the harsh travel environment and the heavy traffic, the mother who accompanied him all the way fell ill, and due to the lack of timely and effective treatments, she finally passed away. This became one of the most painful journeys of Mozart's life.

After returning to Salzburg, Mozart continued to compose and completed his next symphony—No. 33 in B flat major, in July Protected content . It is still beautiful, fascinating, and almost impossible to find the composer's hidden misery. It's just like that saying: "The world treats me with wind and frost, I return the world with precious jade, this is Mozart, and eventually some one will understand his experience.

It took Bruckner two years to complete Symphony No. 6 in September Protected content . It is melodic, colorful and wonderfully conceived. The composer called it his most daring symphony ever.
