If you are looking for a Beethoven Fifth Symphony that is fast and furious (rhythmically vital if with some poetic and softly-spoken moments), detail liberated (not least the Finale’s contrabassoon), featuring rattling timpani, brazen horns, expressive woodwinds, and vibrato-free strings, contrived dynamic tweaks (including subitos), and don’t mind shelling out for thirty minutes of music (a timing that includes repeats in the outer movements), then Teodor Currentzis might be your man, aided and abetted by the totally responsive MusicaAeterna, and well-recorded in Vienna’s Konzerthaus between July 31 & August 4 2018 (from concerts I assume, noises-off suggest so). Sony Classical 19075884972. Me? I rather like it. Surprising (in every sense).
