Another performance: tomorrow at 9.15 Bruckner's Sixth is the least-often performed of his mature symphonies, though he himself described it as his most original work. Completed in 1881, it was first played in Vienna (in incomplete form) two years later; the first complete performance was given in 1901, five years after his death. The movements are: Maestoso, Adagio, Scherzo, and Allegro non troppo.
