»Everything has its limits, Bruckner lies beyond«

This statement by Brahms about Bruckner in a letter to Elisabeth von Herzogenberg was by no means meant to be as enthusiastic as it appears - so taken out of context. On the contrary: in 1885, Brahms introduced a scathing, pitying judgment of his Austrian colleague, which he was later to revise, according to a contemporary witness. He did so after the premiere of Bruckner's 8th Symphony on December 18, 1892, by the Vienna Philharmonic under Hans Richter. The latter is said to have wrung from Brahms the appreciative words that »Bruckner is a genius after all.« In any case, his Eighth hit the public like a comet. It is no coincidence that it was later given the nickname »The Apocalyptic«. At the same time, the work transcends sound spaces and time in an almost mystical way, so that the above abbreviated Brahms quote appears in retrospect like the proverbial spark of truth in every rumor. »Magic Moments« for the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under the musical direction of Manfred Honeck.
