Symphony 29 ‘Salzburg’
Four Movements, Hinterthal, Austria August 2021
Clearly a Symphony 29 can only be in A major and most likely should have a title such as ‘Salzburg’. Therefore the first movement evokes Mozart’s 29th in a fresh and light way, after which the music becomes more and more Romantic and elemental, as the wonderful mountains dictate – and yes the Bruckner evocations are deliberate, because he got it right (and did it better). This is my take.
