Sample text

The shape of the piece is dictated by musical impulse and not solely by the text. Suddenly, Bruckner has the secret of obtaining effects by the simplest of means: the great A major cries of ‘Jesus’ (bars 45–46), for instance, which were singled out for mention in a review in the Linzer Zeitung (15 May 1861) after Frohsinn had performed the work in the Old Cathedral in Linz (12 May). 31 The Afferentur regi of 1861 confirms that the seven-part Ave Maria was not an isolated achievement. The treatment here is more contrapuntal, but Bruckner wears his learning lightly, and the inversions in the opening bars are natural rather than ‘learned’.

This in turn helps to explain would be echoed in the Quintet and the Eighth Symphony, it is otherwise a conventional work, like so many of Bruckner’s secular choruses. 39 A diary entry for 1895 contains a list of manuscripts that Bruckner had sent to be bound; they include the Fifth Symphony and the first movement of the 1890 version of the Eighth. See Maier, Verborgene Persönlichkeit, p. 478, for a transcription. 30 The New Bruckner why the input of editors, both in Bruckner’s own time and subsequently, plays a uniquely conspicuous role in the Bruckner controversies that continue to the present.

Many listeners have felt a spiritual affinity between Bruckner and Schubert, and one can also isolate stylistic traits, such as the major/ minor alternation and a preference for mediant relationships. Schubert’s Great C major Symphony could have supplied Bruckner with a precedent for an extended work whose comparatively gentle pace is animated by a dance-like pulse that provides the energy necessary to sustain long movements while being sufficiently relaxed to encourage extended development of the thematic material.
