The Eighth Symphony  A monument carved from musical tones. With its majestic themes soaring upwards like Gothic pillars and its brilliant chorales and fanfares glowing like stained glass windows Anton Bruckner's Symphony No 8 is the most monumental of his orchestra works a cathedral in sound that grows out of pianissimo mumurs. 

Coming after the triumphs celebrated by the composer's Seventh Symphony and Te Deum the Eighth was considered by Bruckner as the artistic climax of his career.
