Austrian composer Anton Bruckner (1824-1896) vastly expanded the concept of the symphonic form, writing huge symphonies that had never been seen before or since. He wrote 11 symphonies.

Anton Bruckner was an Austrian composer known for his symphonies, masses, and motets. The first are considered emblematic of the final stage of Austro-German Romanticism because of their rich harmonic language, strongly polyphonic character, and considerable length. Bruckner's compositions helped to define contemporary musical radicalism, owing to their dissonances, unprepared modulations, and roving harmonies.
