It is the only symphony by Bruckner that the composer himself gave a subtitle ‘The Romantic’. However, in keeping with usage at the time it does not refer to ‘Romanticism’ in today’s understanding of the word, but to an aesthetic attitude of the desire for the pervasion of art and nature. Hence, the French horns setting the tone from the outset can be interpreted programmatically: through them the spirit wafts through nature. For over an hour Anton Bruckner composed music in such an orgiastic and cheerful, Dionysian and Apollonian, voluptuous and boastful tone.
