The free Memorial Day Concert at The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine features Bruckner’s Eighth. “Beauty is what Bruckner is talking about,” says Jaap van Zweden. In this symphony, beauty takes many forms: it’s gradual unfolding, burnished brass sonorities, soaring lyricism, and a triumphant ending. An inspiring, spiritual way to remember those who died while serving in America’s armed forces.
