Example text

3 How profoundly he was in fact affected by the death of his favorite sister he revealed only a week later in a letter to the Linz cathedral dean Johann Baptist Schiedermayr, where he writes that he was bitterly reproaching himself for having made her “do all the housework”: “If I had had any idea of this, I would not at any price have let the unforgettable girl move to Vienna with me at all but would rather have stayed in Linz myself. Your Grace, who knows my nerves, can easily judge what I suffered now.

He championed both Bruckner and Brahms (which offended Bruckner) and conducted several of Bruckner’s symphonies in Vienna, mostly with great success: on February 20, 1881, the Fourth, on March 21, 1886, the Seventh, on December 21, 1890, the reworked Third, on December 13, 1891, the “Viennese” version of the First, on December 18, 1892, the second version of the Eighth and on November 25, 1894, the Second. 4 Felix Mottl (1856-1911), finally, the youngest of the “guardians,” had studied music theory under Bruckner at the Conservatory of the Society of the Friends of Music in Vienna.

And what joy it is to look at it frequently! etc. I also beg for your cherished friendship, dearest Miss! May I never be deprived of it! ”17 In language, Bruckner could express his feelings for the most part only discreetly. How hard it was for him to leave his beloved activity as organist at the old cathedral in Linz one can tell from one touching detail. ”18 This brief good-bye reveals more than even his letters about his feelings. It is in his stirring music, however, that Bruckner’s emotionality finds its transcendent expression.
