JS Bach Magnificat
Bruckner Symphony No.4 ‘Romantic’
Bach composed the Magnificat for Christmas services in his first year as Kantor at St Thomas’s, Leipzig in 1723. This gloriously exuberant and joyful choral work will be performed by the new University Chamber Choir and student soloists with the University Philharmonia. Bruckner’s majestic Symphony No.4 is perhaps his best
known symphony. The only one to which he appended a subtitle, Bruckner subsequently added a written programme to each of the movements which conveyed a distinctly Romantic theme: evoking hunting, medieval knights, castles and scenes from nature.
