Jakub Hrůša conducts Bruckner’s Fourth and a world premiere

Bruckner’s “Romantic” Fourth Symphony has a distinct feeling of longing and closeness to nature – for instance, in the horn call at the beginning and the melancholy singing of the strings. The work is conducted by Jakub Hrůša, who also presents the world premiere of Keyframes for a Hippogriff by Olga Neuwirth, one of the most sought-after composers of our time. Neuwirth says the work is about trying “to remain a free soul despite the despair and pain in this world”.
