I long suspected that I would love Bruckner's symphonies when I finally get around to familiarizing myself with them, and that time has finally come. I've listened to the 1st and 2nd symphonies about six times each in the last five days, as well as one listening of the 3rd symphony.
I know that his later symphonies are way better than the earlier ones, but I'm going in order and getting to know the music and the man as I go along. I'm very excited, and am enjoying this a lot! When I read things about certain movements of his later symphonies and how unbelievable they are, it feels like I'm reading a spoiler about a future episode of something that I'm currently only at the beginning of. There's that same sense of excitement and epic scope of the journey still ahead.
Just wanted to share!
