    Strauss  Metamorphosen
    Bruckner  Symphony No. 6  

    Two iconic works from the post-romantic Germanic repertoire are on the programme for this concert: Bruckner’s Symphony No. 6, completed in 1881, and Strauss’s Metamorphosen, composed in 1945 amid the ruins of Germany.
    Die Sechste, die keckste (The sixth and the sauciest): Bruckner’s play on words describes the only  orchestral score which he never revised. In a departure from his usual methods, there were no revisions and no rewritings with this symphony. He achieved immediate perfection in this work which is written for a relatively modest ensemble (woodwind in pairs), but remains monumental in scale. When the end of World War Two was in sight, Strauss composed his Metamorphosen for strings. This poignant lament closes with a quotation from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, Eroica, as a sort of reminder of the very best of German culture.
