Dear singers, dear choral lovers!
We can finally organize a choir academy again as part of the St. Florian Bruckner Days. Since 2012, some of Bruckner’s great works have been performed in the abbey’s basilica, each featuring around 80 singers.
At our 2023 Festival we will have Bruckner’s largest psalm setting, Psalm 146, on program alongside the Altomonte Orchestra under the direction of “Resident Conductor” Remy Ballot. Most of this work was created during his time in Florian and completed in Linz in 1856 and 1858. The special feature of this cantata-like composition is the double choir system, which is why we are allowed to work with two experienced choral teachers “ob” and “lower” the Enns Edgar Wolf, who has already led several choir academies at Bruckner Days and Regens Chori of the St. Florian, Martin Zeller, who also works as choir director at the Linz Music Theatre. In the course of this concert, Bruckner’s symphony “0” will also be performed.
We would all be very happy if this choral work was heard at the master’s grave with many enthusiastic singers.
With musical regards, Matthias Jessen
