Bruckner+Mozart introduction by Ken Ward  29. June 2017

Before the Bruckner+Mozart concert (29. June) Ken Ward will be giving an introduction about Bruckner.

Ken Ward has been the editor of The Bruckner Journal for 12 years, a post from which he has just retired.  His love of Bruckner began in 1962 when he discovered a recording of the 4th symphony hidden away unplayed in his father's record collection. So for over 50 years he has remained moved and intrigued by this music, has delivered papers at Oxford University on the occasion of The Bruckner Journal biennial conferences, written many concert reviews published on on-line sites such as bachtrack and classical, and CD reviews for The Bruckner Journal. He is a frequent visitor to St Florian, the monastery in Upper Austria where Bruckner was brought up, and to other places significant for Bruckner performance or Bruckner's life, including Vienna, Berlin and Ebrach in Bavaria. He is not himself a musician or an academic specialist, but a lay enthusiast who is pleased to pass on his enthusiasm and appreciation of Bruckner's music to other music lovers.  In April 2011 he was awarded the Bruckner Society of America medal of honour for "his exemplary work in furthering the understanding and appreciation of the life and work of Anton Bruckner".
