Haunting beauty and realms of enchantment.

Anton Kuerti mesmerizes audiences with his revelatory performances of the Emperor, Beethoven's final and muchloved concerto. Kuerti's affinity with this work is especially revealed in the haunting beauty of the concerto's Adagio movement. The latter was recently used to poignant effect in the film The King's Speech. Bruckner was accused unfairly of trying to "out-Beethoven Beethoven" in his lifetime but it is certainly true he loved his music. Like his hero, Bruckner composed nine symphonies of which the Fourth, steeped so romantically in medieval pageantry and realms of enchantment, is the most popular.

What a fabulous evening! Thoroughly enjoyed the subtle nuances of Beethoven but also delighted by Bruckner in a dynamic performance. First class performance in Brisbane!
