Bruckner Mass No. 3 in F minor (2013)

Bruckner

Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Rundfunkchor Berlin

Marek Janowski

Probably no other great master began his career in a more sceptical and timid manner than Bruckner. With these words, the great German musicologist Friedrich Blume cut to the quick in his brief and specific description of the peculiar initiation of Anton Bruckner in his development from the village school-assistant to composer, from socially secure secondary school teacher to free-lance artist. For alongside his tenure as organist in Linz, Upper Austria from 1856 to 1868, the former school assistant and high school teacher Bruckner completed a seven-year course of music theory studies with none other than Simon Sechter. Following the death of Georg Albrechtsberger, Sechter was considered “the leading authority in music theory” in Vienna. And Bruckner submitted to this authority with heart and soul, during a period of intensive self-study in Linz as well as during prolonged stays in the Austrian capital. At the end of his apprenticeship in 1861, the student asked his teacher for testimonials of the skills he had learned in the following music theory subjects: harmony, studies in single, double, triple and quadruple counterpoint, as well as in church music, canon and fugue.

Orchestre de la Suisse Romande

Founded in 1918 by Ernest Ansermet, permanent conductor until 1967, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, with its 112 permanent musicians, ensures subscription concerts in Geneva and Lausanne, the City of Geneva symphony concerts, the annual fund-raising concert for the UN, as well as opera performances at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Its reputation has been built up over the years thanks to its historic recordings and its interpretation of 20th-century French and Russian repertoire.

The orchestra's Music and Artistic Director will be Jonathan Nott from the 2016-2017 season. Its Principal Guest Conductor is Japanese maestro Kazuki Yamada.

Under the guidance of its founding conductor and subsequent music directors (Paul Kletzki 1967- 1970, Wolfgang Sawallisch 1970-1980, Horst Stein 1980-1985, Armin Jordan 1985-1997, Fabio Luisi 1997-2002, Pinchas Steinberg 2002-2005, Marek Janowski 2005-2012, Neeme Järvi, 2012-2015), the world-famous Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is an active contributor to the history of music through the discovery or support of leading contemporary composers. The pieces by Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin, Benjamin Britten, Heinz Holliger, Peter Eötvös, James MacMillan, Pascal Dusapin, Michael Jarrell or Richard Dubugnon were premiered in Geneva by the OSR. It is  one of its important mission: supporting the symphonic creation, and particularly the Swiss one. The OSR is a partner of Pro Helvetia until 2017 for the project “Oeuvres suisses”
