This is the first release of the premiere performance of Takanobu Kawasaki's reconstruction of the Symphony No.5. Material was taken from manuscripts Mus.Hs.19.477 & Mus.Hs.3162 at the Austrian National Library. From this material, Mr. Kawasaki was able to assemble his original concepts of the Symphony No. 5. It is the best available CD to present some of Bruckner's earlier thoughts for this massive symphony. Akira Naito conducts the Tokyo New City Orchestra.
NOTE: This CD is no longer in print. Through an agreement with Delta Entertainment, we can now offer you a CDR clone of this recording. Each CD will come with a booklet with notes in English (original CD was Japanese only).
