I just listened to Carlos Kleiber conduct the Vienna Philharmonic perform Beethoven's Fifth Symphony (1975). Forget Leonard Bernstein's recordings - this is the real deal.
BTW, the 5th is only my fifth-favorite of the Big B's symphonies. For a real treat, listen to Bernstein (also in Vienna) conduct the Fourth.
