The start of a special Christmas series of highlights from the summer Proms. The Vienna Philharmonic orchestra performs Bruckner's symphonic triumph of light over darkness, which according to one of his keenest supporters, composer Hugo Wolf, 'excels every other Symphony of the Master in its spiritual dimensions, richness and greatness'.

Presented by Andrew McGregor and recorded at the Royal Albert Hall.

1 hour 35 minutes

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra
