Anton Bruckner

Author Code: GANB

Born: Sep. 4, 1824 - Ansfelden, Austria

Died: Oct. 11, 1896 - Vienna, Austria

Educated at a school in Horsching where he learned to play the organ, Bruckner came from a musical family. He studied choir, violin and organ at an Augustinian monastery in Sankt Florian and then attended a teaching seminar in Linz. He taught school at Windhaag from 1841 to 1843 and at Ens until 1845. It was during these years that he began to compose in earnest. He returned to Sankt Florian where he became the organist in 1848, whilst continuing to teach. In 1855, he began studying with Simon Sechter in Vienna and continued in 1861 with Otto Kitzler. When Sechter died in 1868, Bruckner assumed his post as teacher of music theory at the Vienna Conservatory. In 1875, he taught at Vienna University while composing some of his best work. In all, Bruckner composed nine symphonies, a number of masses and choral works, and some organ and chamber music. In 1886, he received the Order of Franz Joseph from the Emperor. He received an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Vienna in 1891. Bruckner's symphonies are considered unique in their individuality.
