Herbert Blomstedt conducts Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony

Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony is the documentation of an existential crisis. At the time of its composition, the 50-year-old composer was not accepted as an artist, nor had he found the desperately longed-for wife. With the confident architecture of the Finale and its solemn orchestral chorales, the Symphony displays more defiance than despair, however. Here it is conducted by Herbert Blomstedt, one of the outstanding Bruckner interpreters of our time.
