'They want me to write differently. Certainly I could, but I must not', said Anton Bruckner. 'How then would I stand there before Almighty God, if I followed the others and not Him?' The majestic Fifth Symphony is Bruckner at his most personal yet most classical, and Vladimir Jurowski – whose Bruckner performances were praised by The Guardian for their 'raw and striving authenticity' – feels passionately about the music. It will make a magnificent complement to the controlled darkness of Mozart’s great D minor Piano Concerto, performed tonight by one of our most eloquent and insightful Mozart pianists, Richard Goode.
