There are countless classical performances on YouTube...... But only a select few hold my attention....... This is one such case.
First movement of Bruckner Fourth Symphony.......
This is proof you don't need a world famous orchestra to get an engaging performance. The Orquestra Petrobras SinfŰnica does three things extraordinarily well, for any orchestra, in this performance- Articulation, overall cohesiveness, and phrasing. With a good read (in the limited portion of the work) from conductor GŁnter Neuhold. What you hear is Bruckner with its full harmonic color, devoid of the "leaden" character that often plagues this composer's music. (I also get the impression the hall this orchestra performs in has world class acoustics- Each section comes across crystal clear in the linked recording.) This is just an excerpt, but this looks and sounds like an interesting music institution that might garner attention.
