this is the first piece i heard of Bruckner, actually. I didnt like it at first because it has no real melody that echos back in the other mvmnts, except for that 4 note thing.<BR>But it was good, i dont think that ive "got it" yet, but it does seem very spiritual. i think it was very close to what he intended to write. Too loud in the 1st mvt, tho i think. either that, or i just havent "got it" yet, which i just mentioned. remember when you criticize a work, always try to think if the composer intended it. The composer cant be wrong, cuz thats what he wrote. there is no right or wrong answer for a piece of music, other than a wrong note placed here or there, and mistakes are mistakes. they are forgiven. no one is perfect (except Beethoven). also im gonna write about Mozart in a minute on a new topic please read it.<P>Flowerboy<BR>Brandon<BR>p.s. i might change my user name to MahlerFurimmer.<BR>thoughts on that are welcome.
