I have heard Beethoven's Fifth hundreds of times, but never quite like this version. Gustavo Dudamel's interpretation brought a freshness that gave new life to this old war horse. I must also praise the fine camera work that added much to my enjoyment. I will be recommending this DVD to all my classical music friends.
Gustavo Dudamel's conducting stance at Brahms's 'Variations on a theme by Joseph Haydn' and Beethoven's 5th symphony are extraordinary.
And there is this young man-Gautier Capucon. The way he plays Haydn's cello concerto is absolutely charming.
On the whole, this is a real beautiful concert.
The sound recording is excellent. The performing space - Vienna's Spanish Riding School - gets just the right amount of camera time. What's not to like?
