Why. Now we're back in music already for the second half of this concert by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Thomas Schippers conductor. And we're going to hear the adagio learned from the Symphony Number 8 by Booker. It's one movement of a symphony but one of the longest slow movements in this of chronic literature. And now widely regarded as one of the most beautiful. It's difficult to know what to say about on time but here. It is easy to get into long involved explanations and technical discussions. It is also easy to say too little. Broken or came in late to composition and even later to success he did not really receive any success at all until his seventh symphony. The musical politics of the day were part of the reason. But also he is a very difficult composer to approach in many ways.
Perhaps the two main forces in his life. Were God and nature. He was possessed of a childlike faith. And often visited by mystical visions. He perceived the sole purpose and significance of his creative work to lie in that location of his Creator. And intimately linked with this was his closeness to nature to the majesty and wild grounds or of the Osprey in Alps. He lived in the foothills during the most formative years of his life. Schopenhauer wrote with a work of art you must behave as with the prince. Stand before it and wait till it speaks to you. To some broker may never speak. For others he is full of eloquence. It's generally agreed that his adagio is are. Quite beautiful. Quite listening. Will. They also have the characteristic looking or style large
climaxes preceded and followed by silences. This adagio is not in the usual Sonata Allegro form but rather it's based on two different themed groups. These are played three times each time expanded and followed by a coda. The instrumentation is unusual to among the. Score of three flutes three of those three clarinets three bassoons and assume eight horns and five of these are interchangeable with tenor and bass tubas. The Wagner tubas. Book nerd was influenced by that but by Wagner. Also three trumpets three trombones contributions to the timpani percussion three harps which play a great deal of importance in this movement and strings. The work is unbroken or so-called ecstatic key that of the flat. Here's Thomas shippers. We're going to hear now the adagio of Bruckner's Symphony Number 8.
