Anton Bruckner 2024

Upper Austria is the home of Anton Bruckner. Born in Ansfelden in 1824, he developed his musical interests at St Florian Monastery, where he was trained and his talent was nurtured. In Linz, he became much celebrated for his improvisation skills as an organist and developed into a composer with a distinctive musical language. In 2024, to mark the 200th anniversary of Bruckner’s birth, the whole of Upper Austria will be the stage for a rich variety of celebrations of this exceptional artist and fresh thinking about him and his work.
