Runnicles Conducts Haydn and Bruckner

Program

HAYDN
Cello Concerto in C major / 25 min

INTERMISSION / 20 min

BRUCKNER
Symphony No. 7 / 64 min

At a Glance

Honed over decades by our beloved former music director, the late Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, the Minnesota Orchestra has a unique affinity for Bruckner, truly letting the brass and strings sing from within his music. And Donald Runnicles is laying exciting new claims to Bruckner’s epic symphonies today. We set this stage with the sunniest of Haydn’s concertos, performed by one of the world’s finest cellists, Johannes Moser.

Artists

  • Minnesota Orchestra
  • Donald Runnicles, conductor
  • Johannes Moser, cello

Did You Know?

  • Like many of us, Anton Bruckner was a constant over-thinker. Now he’s considered a genius who helped usher in a new artistic period of orchestral music. But he was famously self-critical of his own music and would often tirelessly rework his own compositions.
  • Scottish conductor Donald Runnicles is no stranger to this side of the Atlantic. He has served as the principal guest conductor for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for almost 20 years.
  • After making a stunning debut with the Minnesota Orchestra last season, German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser returns to perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1.
  • Franz Joseph Haydn’s First Cello Concerto was composed around 1761 but was thought to have been lost completely until almost 200 years later.
