Thielemann Conducts Bruckner's Fifth Symphony

Just a few weeks ago I posted some other videos featuring German conductor Christian Thielemann. But I thought LSM readers and viewers would also be interested in another recent Thielemann performance notable for its tremendous authority and power. Bruckner's Symphony No. 5 is one of the composer's greatest creations, and its last movement is remarkable for its complexity and cumulative effect. Not many conductors and orchestras can put it all together with more than partial success. Thielemann and the Munich Philharmonic give a performance that is technically magnificent and spiritually profound.
