The project is inspired by exciting new musicological research into the historical interpretation of Bruckner’s symphonies. The Boston Bruckner Festival hopes to introduce new listeners to the mystical, yet often overlooked symphonies of Anton Bruckner, to cast new light on this deeply moving music and share it’s redemptive, spiritual message in our time. The Boston Festival Orchestra features talented volunteer musicians from around the Boston area and from Rhode Island, Connecticut and Maine. This is the first of two concerts in this summer’s inaugural Boston Bruckner Festival. The Boston Festival Orchestra will present Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 at 8 p.m. on August 17 at the University Lutheran Church.
