Episode 2 – Doubt
How hard did Bruckner struggle with himself?

Anton Bruckner is often portrayed as a doubter - as one who struggled with himself. 
He was never satisfied with his symphonies; he revised most of them several times and later declared many to be bad.
But how does doubt fit with Bruckner's heroic, powerful music? 
In the second episode, we turn our attention to Bruckner's psychology and the question of how much perfectionism is actually healthy.
