Anton Bruckner as a Musician and an Educator

V. P. Konnov
Price: 50 руб.
The great Austrian composer Anton Bruckner (1824–1896) was a music scholar 
and an educator. A school-teacher profession, inherited from his father, was 
tightly connected with his personality development in Austrian St. Florian 
monastery, which was his spiritual homeland and where he obtained his unsur-
passed skills as an organ improviser. Then he moved to Linz where he ceased 
to be a school-teacher and began to be a council organist and a student of the 
famous Viennese theorist Simon Sechter. He took over Sechter’s professorship in 
the conservatoire of Vienna and became a professor at Vienna university where 
he was awarded the status of Doctor Honoris Causa. His scientifi c ideas of the 
so-called “musical architecture” can be compared with typical concepts and 
formal structures of his mature symphonies from the Third to the Ninth. When 
he became a world’s famous composer, who was well supported by the govern-
ment, he didn’t stop giving lectures to students because his devotion to music 
science and pedagogy was deeply rooted in his indestructible Christian faith 
and his creative power as a composer. 
Keywords: historiography of Brucknerian research, organ improvisation, musical architecture, epic scherzo, genres of equal, Mass, and symphony.
