Description: Bruckner’s early orchestral works works already show his preference for irregular periods, as he also used them in his organ improvisations, and his preference for sequencing rather than complex motivic processing, and great dynamic developments. Thus the Three Pieces, which use motifs from Beethoven's piano sonatas, among other things, are given the typical Bruckner tone; with a grand gesture, Bruckner avoids the so obvious stylistic copy of the classical model. Extended organ points, especially in the overture, do the rest, and in Innig's organ adaptation, the journeyman pieces acquire an astonishingly convincing plausibility.
