Masur/Gewandhausorchester gives beautifully crafted yet deeply felt account of Symphony No.5.
Masur pays careful attention to every detail, yet makes it sound so natural and spontaneous in the ebb and flow of the music, that it adds to the depth of interpretation.
Climax in the outer movements are nobly controlled yet very effective in conveying the sense of profundity. The slow movement is most beautifully played with noble grace and rich string sound.
Overall, this is a refreshingly eloquent and magnificent account, well worth adding to your collection.
