The purpose of this study aimed to examine the individual aspects and realization of Anton Bruckner's Requiem in D Minor, in the context of time of creation and the surrounding cultural environment. The research attempted to discover certain analogies with preceding models and to reveal the unique approach of the composer at an early professional stage.
In the process of exploring different physiognomic outlines various sources were used for prerequisite musical idioms and their transformation in the present work. The main part of the critical review was the consideration of Bruckner's curriculum factology prior to and at the time of composition. The preparation and live performance of the work provoked numerous interpretative problems. Their appropriate formulation and solution extracted basic outcomes and analytical issues.
Analysis of the type of structural and compositional tools proved an authentic approach and guiding direction for its further application in Bruckner's future mature works.
