Bernard Haitink conducts Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony

In this recording from 2011, the great Bruckner conductor Bernard Haitink performs his Fifth Symphony. The appeal of the Fifth lies in its ingenious polyphony with which Bruckner wanted to persuade the last doubters of his abilities. Wonderfully floating, transcendental choral melodies form a counter-world to the bright construction. The message of the deeply religious Bruckner is clear: that there is something higher than all earthly endeavours.
