Brahms and Bruckner were approximately the same age, both lived in Vienna and both concentrated on writing absolute music. They were unintentional opponents: Bruckner, as a New-German Wagnerian, penetrated the symphonic genre claimed by traditionalists while Brahms was acclaimed by his followers as the only legitimate heir to Beethoven. This concert reconciles the irreconcilable, placing Brahms’ Violin Concerto alongside Bruckner’s Symphony No. 3.Brahms’ Violin Concerto is unusually symphonic in structure. The violin is not intended to demonstrate the virtuosic ability of its player but functions as ‘primus inter pares’ and plays a significant part in the development of the musical motifs. Although it was originally deemed unplayable (“this is not a concerto for the violin but against the violin” – Hans von Bülow), Brahms’ Violin Concerto now has a special place in the heart of many soloists and conductors.  Bruckner dedicated his Symphony No. 3 to Richard Wagner (“the unreachable, world-famous and noble master of poetry and music”) after the latter had spoken positively about the score – albeit while under the influence of a large quantity of beer. Following a catastrophic premiere and many revisions, Symphony No. 3 was ultimately Bruckner’s artistic breakthrough.
