Claudio Abbado is undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time. He conducts the composers Fifth and most popular Symphony which became world-famous as the soundtrack to Viscontis Death in Venice. The Lucerne Festival Orchestra has set new standards in the field of classical music with the participation of great soloists at the orchestras first desks, e.g. clarinetist Sabine Meyer, oboist Albrecht Mayer, violist Wolfram Christ, cellist Natalia Gutman and the Hagen Quartet. Claudio Abbado is undeniably a supreme Mahler conductor and his best selling recordings with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra symphonies No. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 (on Blu-ray No. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6) have already been released on EuroArts have set new standards in interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler.

However, for me, this is a disappointing release. The feature that made the DVD so cherished was the Conductor Camera - the ability to watch Abbado throughout the Symphony. Seeing it made me realise just how many wonderful Abbado moments you miss when enjoying the views of the musicians; it was quite a revelation. It is not preserved here. The recent Accentus Mahler 9 release (Mahler: Symphony No. 9 [Blu-ray]  shows that it's possible on Blu-ray, so I'm afraid I simply find fault with EuroArts for taking the easy route, not making the effort to produce the disk they could have, and not, as the other releases have been, an HD version of the previous DVD release.
The performance is without fault. The release, bar the above, is excellent and deserves 5*s. But it could have been even better.
