Immediately after completing the Second Symphony, Anton Bruckner (1824–1896) continued a fruitful compositional spree by starting the draft of his Third. He had no way of knowing then that this work would continue to occupy him for the rest of his life. The Third is written in D minor, just like the early symphony that was not assigned a number and labelled as “nullified” in the composer’s autograph. Bruckner spent more time working on the Third than on any other symphony. His efforts yielded three versions that are now widely performed: the 1873 version, the 1877 version and the 1888/89 version.
Gerd Schaller followed a classical career path, starting as a solo rehearsal pianist and advancing to GMD. He began his conducting career proper in 1993 at the State Opera in Hanover, and in 1998 went as Principal Conductor to the State Theatre at Braunschweig. From 2003 to 2006 he was GMD at Theater Magdeburg. Since then, he has worked as a guest conductor with renowned orchestras both at home and abroad.
The Philharmonie Festiva can, despite its relatively short track record, look back on a series of successful projects. In 2010 for instance, the orchestra was awarded the ECHO Klassik prize for the world premiere recording of Carl Goldmark’s Romantic opera Merlin in the category Opera Recording of the Year (19th century).
This Bruckner cycle has already received great acclaim from audiences and critics in Germany and abroad.
All of these recordings were undertaken in cooperation with Bavarian Radio’s Franconian Studio and the internationally celebrated CD label Profil Edition Günter Hänssler.
