 Love No. 5 !! March 4, 2015 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "I found this recording at my public library quite a few years ago. It provided me with a first exposure to Symphony No. 5 and I became instantly enamored. There are now many recordings available of the work, but this one still shines brightly for me. Everyone needs at least one Bernstein recording--this is a great one indeed." Report Abuse
