Kirill Petrenko conducts Bruckner and Rihm

Anton Bruckner’s symphonies have often been described as cathedrals of sound – monumental, tonal architecture combined with soaring climaxes. This is also the case with the Fifth, which Bruckner called his “contrapuntal masterpiece” as a result of its masterly compositional technique. Kirill Petrenko pairs it with a work that also has a connection to sacred architecture: Wolfgang Rihm’s IN-SCHRIFT, whose dark, vibrant sound sculptures are inspired by St Mark’s Basilica in Venice.
