Anton Bruckner

(1818 -1896)
Anton Bruckner, a giant of the 19th-century symphony, was born on September 4, 1824, in the rural Austrian town of Ansfelden. Bruckner was from a musical and deeply pious family of Roman Catholics. His father was a schoolmaster-organist who gave Anton beginning keyboard and violin lessons, while his mother was a vocalist in the local church choir. Bruckner showed a musical gift from childhood becoming proficient enough by the age of ten to serve as assistant organist during mass. Anton was sent to St. Florian Monastery after his father's 1837 death and began work as a choir boy. Bruckner's voice broke in 1839 and he decided to likewise pursue a schoolmaster-organist career. He took up required courses at Linz, which included music theory under well-known theorist August Dürrnberger, he was first exposed in detail to secular works, such as by Beethoven and Mozart.
