Introduction

“Hallelujah!” wrote the euphoric Anton Bruckner in his compositional sketches at the point where the main themes of all parts of his eighth symphony are played simultaneously in the final metres of the work. Bruckner set the bar high when he began working on the symphony: his goal was to compose the greatest symphony of all time. The opening bars of his cathedral-sized eighth symphony invite listeners on a daring journey that is worth taking!
