He wrote it in 1936 for the Teatro Monumental in Madrid without ever denying his Russian roots. Anton Bruckner said about his Sixth symphony ‘Die Sechste ist die keckste.’ Quite the humorous description of a piece of music that primarily depicts the majestic beauty of the Alps where Bruckner was born. The Guardian didn’t just praise Hadelich but the BBC Philharmonic as well: ‘Exceptional beauty’. Bruckner would be pleased; he only got to hear two parts of the piece.
