Fanfare, May 2015

…magnificently played performance of the Fifth…it may well be the very finest we are going to hear (and see) in the present day.

…the superb execution and cohesion among the players, and between the players and Thielemann, are evident, and to my ear make for a satisfactory statement of the music. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

This strikes me as a distinguished account of Bruckner’s Fifth…I appreciated this superbly played performance very much. The sound is very good and the camera-work is expert. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

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
