Seldom called Lyric

Anton Bruckner, this work is in
the public domain in the United States 
Bruckner's Seventh Symphony quotes previous music written by the composer, although he said he heard it in a dream played on viola, awoke and wrote down the melody. Adolf Hitler loved the slow movement of the symphony and made a bust of the composer in 1937. On the next Classical Spotlight, we'll talk with conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing about the Seventh Symphony of Bruckner, sometimes referred to as the Lyric, Thursday afternoon at one o'clock on KPAC and KTXI.
