Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The New Bruckner provides a valuable study of Bruckner's music, focusing on the interaction of biography, textual scholarship, reception history and analysis. Dermot Gault corrects longstanding misconceptions about the composer's revision process and traces Bruckner's constantly evolving engagement with symphonic form by taking each revision in due order and by relating the symphonies to other mature works. He argues that Bruckner's music became more organic and less schematic as the result of his revisions.
