More Details:

  • Stanislaw Skrowaczewski’s hands were injured as a boy in wartime Poland when a German bomber attacked his neighborhood—ending his dream of becoming a concert pianist.
  • Skrowaczewski backpacked and mountain climbed well into his 80s—always wearing a little bell on his belt to warn off bears and cougars.
  • No conductor in the world has earned more praise for his interpretations of Bruckner’s symphonies than Skrowaczewski.
  • Bruckner was one of the 19th century’s most painfully shy and unlucky-in-love composers.
  • The slow movement of his Eighth is arguably the most beautiful music he ever wrote.
