Bruckner & Brahms. Special Exhibition
Just as back then, the lives and works of the two great composers, Anton Bruckner (1824–1896) and Johannes Brahms (1833–1897), are still accompanied by a wide-ranging debate about the similarities and contrasts of the two contemporaries. Their musical works are outshone not least by historically significant figures from Haydn to Wagner, who exerted considerable influence on both composers.
The preferences of their respective devotees are sometimes regarded as a musical principle that ranges from traditional to modern music, from detailed chamber music to symphonic brilliance. Essentially, however, Bruckner and Brahms are more similar than their often highlighted polarity suggests.
As part of this special exhibition to mark the 120th anniversary of their deaths, Haus der Musik provides a glimpse into the lives of these two great composers.
The permament exibition at Haus der Musik offers further information on Bruckner, Brahms and their contemporaries. With the “Virtual Conductor” on the third floor, visitors can conduct the Vienna Philharmonic and Brahms’ “Hungarian Dance”.
