Happy Birthday, Herr Bruckner!

Summary

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Anton Bruckner’s birth, SPM presents the fifth of his nine great symphonies. Bruckner is considered to be the last great symphonist of Austro-German romanticism. A man of both deep humility and profound genius, Bruckner’s musical expression moves the listener to simply succumb to the glories of his rich harmonic language and vast landscapes. We have in our midst Benjamin Korstvedt, one of the world’s leading Bruckner scholars, who is on the faculty of Clark University in Worcester. Mr. Korstvedt’s advice will guide our interpretation, and his informative pre-concert talks will elucidate this composer’s beloved music for us all. As a delightful prelude to Bruckner’s Symphony No. 5, we feature another gifted young virtuoso musician, 22-year-old hornist Graham Lovely, performing Mozart’s beloved Horn Concerto No. 4.

(Maestro Churchill's) thorough knowledge of the score, in both the new and old repertoire we performed, was incredibly impressive.

My first attendance at a concert by Symphony Pro Musica under the direction of its founding conductor, Maestro Mark Churchill, was so delightful that I immediately became a subscribing member

Richard DiBuono

SPM board member

Mark’s earnest, music-loving approach, as well as his ability to shape the rehearsal sequence so that everyone could play with confidence at concert night, created a congenial atmosphere that made all of us give our best.

Christine Friedrich

SPM clarinetist, 2021-2023

No matter how we felt when we arrived at (a performance) we would all, audience members, conductor, and orchestra, feel much better when we left. How many things are there left in today’s world with that level of reliability and assurance?

Daniel Sweeney

Former SPM board President

As a professional musician, I can say with confidence that I have rarely played under the baton of someone as gifted as Maestro Churchill.
