Programme

Concert Information

The air shimmers, and in the distance a horn calls softly - no wonder Bruckner called this Fourth Symphony the ‘Romantic’. Bruckner imagined a story of knights, forests and distant castles – but he preferred to let the music speak for itself. Juanjo Mena prefaces it with a celebratory cantata by one of the composers Bruckner loved best, sung by the acclaimed Manchester Chamber Choir.

Post-Concert Performance

Manchester Chamber Choir performs in the main auditorium with conductor Justin Doyle.
