After many failures, Anton Bruckner finally achieved a triumph with his Seventh Symphony. Whether in New York, London or Amsterdam, people everywhere wanted to hear what to this day is still the composer’s most popular work, with its poignant Adagio movement. Bernard Haitink, one of the great Bruckner experts, conducts this performance. In addition, Paul Lewis makes his debut as soloist with the Berliner Philharmoniker in Mozart’s introverted, melancholy Piano Concerto No. 26.
