BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 5 (Thielemann) (NTSC) 717808
BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 5 (Thielemann) (Blu-ray, HD) 717904

…Christian Thielemann and his Dresden orchestra offer, generally speaking, honest reportage plain and simple, a Fifth to savour repeatedly. Thielemann’s rostrum manner is entirely natural and the camerawork, like the musical performance, eschews irritating eccentricity. Altogether a distinguished production, and very well recorded. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Robert Benson, December 2014

This magnificent performance of Symphony No. 5 is perfectly paced, detailed and played with virtuosity, particularly the brass. The finale builds to a huge thrilling climax, and as the recorded sound is uncommonly rich, the effect is impressive indeed. Video is brilliant with the camera always in the right spot. This is essential for those who love Bruckner’s music. © 2014 Read complete review
