Directions:
As a guest in Kirchdorf, the composer liked to go on excursions in the surrounding area. Several anecdotes tell of a visit to Altpernstein Castle: It was only with difficulty and sometimes ‘Engerl getragen’ - sitting on the clasped hands of his companions - that he was able to negotiate the steep castle path. Once at the top, Bruckner had himself locked up in the castle dungeon. Moved by the agony of his ‘imprisonment’, he is said to have sung - once free again - ‘Resurrexit!’ (‘He is risen!’).This walk will be re-enacted on 16 June. Anyone who wants to can also expose themselves to the situation of being locked up when they reach their destination and then write down their impressions in musical notation.
