"Perhaps no music is more recognizable than the opening strains of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, but this exploration will enhance your appreciation of its grandeur. Beethoven's 5th: The Multimedia Symphony includes video clips of musicians, a section on the instruments, and the entire score, with a performance by the Zagreb Philharmonic under Richard Erdlinger. This well-rounded disk should pique your interest in the Fifth beyond da-da-da-dum."
