Notes & Reviews:

"Without being quirky Haitink presents it in a way that feels utterly fresh...the results are exhilarating." -BBC Music Magazine

BBC Music Magazine
The Fifth Symphony represents the challenge of being the best-known work in the repertoire, but without being quirky Haitink presents it in a way that feels utterly fresh. The First Symphony begins with a surprisingly sedate first movement for an Allegro coin brio, but phrasing is so enchantingly pointed that it is hard to object. The rest of the Symphony moves with that Haydnish combination of gracefulness and ebullience which is the work's hallmark.
