Anton Bruckner‘s Symphony No. 7 in E major (WAB 107) is one of his best-known symphonies. It was written between 1881 and 1883 and was revised in 1885. It is dedicated to Ludwig II of Bavaria. The premiere, given under Arthur Nikisch and theGewandhaus Orchestra in the opera house at Leipzig on 30 December 1884,[1] brought Bruckner the greatest success he had known in his life. The symphony is sometimes referred to as the “Lyric”, though the appellation is not the composer’s own, and is seldom used.

George Szell & Wiener Philharmoniker – Orchestra Concert of 1966 Wiener Festwochen

Beautiful music, as it was understood in the 20th century (Gosh it was like yesterday). Not only that, but also the entire video, in good old black  and white, maintaining the air of time long passed …Someday, today will too become part of the historic past as something always happen, each moment to make one thinking about it as… Memorable .
