Bruckner's contrapuntal masterpiece

Günter Wand (1912-2002), one of the most accomplished Bruckner connoisseurs and interpreters, counted his Fifth Symphony (alongside the Ninth) as one of the composer's most »authentic« symphonies. Here, »where Bruckner's distance from the world becomes clearer than anywhere else«, he shows himself to be »totally uninfluenced« by any role models or whisperers. Posterity occasionally gave the work, which its creator himself had never heard played by an orchestra, strange epithets or descriptions such as »Symphony of Faith« or »Catholic«. Bruckner himself referred to his Fifth as the »Fantastic« or his »contrapuntal masterpiece«. For a long time, the symphony remained in the repertoire in an arrangement by Franz Schalk, in which it also received its mutilated premiere. (It was even performed again and again in this form at the Wiener Konzerthaus until the end of the 1980s). Today, however, Bruckner's original idea has prevailed and, of course, only original parts are used in the concerts of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra under Cornelius Meister.
