Jaap van Zweden's version of Bruckner's 5th is competitive with the best of them. If you love Bruckner like I do, you should find this (..which might be a little difficult, and might set you back more than you want to spend, but it's WORTH it!...), listen to it, and take it to heart. And that goes for van Zweden's other Bruckner symphonies. This conductor deserves to be heard! Highest Recommendation!
