Take arguably the world's finest orchestra, the world's finest music hall and Bruckner's Symphony No.5. Result? A must-listen disc
Repertoire: Symphony No.5
Artists: Vienna Philharmonic/Nikolaus Harnoncourt
Label: RCA 82876 60749 2
Possibly the world’s finest orchestra, playing out of their skins in surely the world’s finest hall (Vienna’s Musikverein).
