After the acclaimed maestro Nikolaus Harnoncourt led the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in a performance of the Third Symphony back in 1994 and of the Fourth in 1997, he returns with Bruckner's Fifth Symphony. Bruckner wrote his Fifth Symphony in Vienna, the city in which he composed most of his symphonies. The work stands out from the others, however, in that its general profile is more cerebral than mystical. Yet even in this impressive feat of contrapuntal technique, the divine light of Bruckner's intense faith still shines through.
