Teacher Günther Herbig will return to the front of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Gran Canaria to direct the Symphony No. 9 by Bruckner Within the eighth concert of the 2020-2021 season, in double session on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 December at the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium at 8:00 p.m.
In this new appointment with the public in Gran Canaria, the honorary director of the Cabildo symphonic ensemble returns to one of his most beloved authors, Anton Bruckner, to offer his reading of the Ninth Symphony, his unfinished testament and one of the summits of symphonic literature .
Conceived as his last tribute to God, the Symphony No. 9 in D minor (1894) occupied the last years of the Ansfelden musician, gradually marked by illness. In this "Goodbye to life", as Bruckner himself referred to the Final AdagioHis sufferings, the doubts that most anguished him, and also his deepest faith in a divinity that did not always offer a consoling countenance are perceived. The harmonic richness, a persistent tonal uncertainty and the eloquence of the dramatic accents, are elements that mark the future of a work whose complex developments are resolved in dissonant climaxes that leave a multitude of questions in suspense.
