The heartrending slow movement of Bruckner's Seventh Symphony became a tribute to the composer's idol, Wagner. Learning of Wagner's death as he was completing the movement, Bruckner dedicated it 'to the memory of the late, deeply beloved and immortal Master'. Wolfgang Rihm's Piano Concerto No 2 (2014), already performed in Salzburg and Washington, creates not only witty interplay between soloist and orchestra, but beautifully detailed scoring of often ravishing delicacy.
