Born at the village of Ansfelden in the Austrian Empire, Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) composed a great number of symphonies and masses, and was also a renowned organist of the period. Owing to the longer nature of many of his works, a newfound appreciation has developed for Bruckner's scores, given the more recent advancements in recording technology and larger format media.
