The Music Plays On — Bruckner Symphony №7

When people ask me what my favorite piece of music is, I find that question to really be a non-starter because I consider the entire artform indispensable. It’s sort of like asking a parent which of their children is their favorite. I normally respond with the somewhat canned response of, “I’m absolutely in love with whatever music I happen to be conducting this week.” While that’s certainly true, there are a couple of desert-island works that I simply couldn’t be without, and Bruckner’s Symphony №7 is one of them.
