One of the greatest works of music ever written. The performance here by Kurt Masur is downright apocalyptic....looks like a slightly reduced orchestra, which maybe gives it more of a chamber feel (?). In any case, enjoy this great performance.
Also cool castle wall backdrop, that never hurts for this kind of thing...
