Riccardo Muti conducts Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, composed in 1944, which ranks among his greatest achievements. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 has grandeur and intensity that foreshadows the mature symphonies of Beethoven. The overture to Rossini’s Il viaggio a Reims gathers several of the composer’s buoyant and picturesque themes.


Gioachino Rossini: Overture to Il viaggio a Reims
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No. 39 in E-flat Major, K. 543
Sergei Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat Major, Op. 100
