And as hinted at in the preceding post,  I found enough to make the shipping charge more reasonable, and pulled the trigger on these three:

10/10 review at Classics Today


Sarge

That's the best opening line of a review that I have ever read.

"Rued Langgaard was, as we now know, basically nuts."

Yes, that cannot be improved upon  :D

Maybe that's why he fits in so well here.

Impulse buy off the GMG banner,  remembering what's been said about it here, and seeing the price would be under $9 including s/h.

That's the best Beethoven VC in existence. You done good  ;)

This is most likely true.


Or perhaps arguable?  I offer this as my pot-of-gold choice:



which has as a bonus factor a cadenza reworked from the one Beethoven fashioned for the piano version of this concerto.  With timpani. 

There's also a Schneiderhan recording with Celibidache in Italy which I didn't even know existed until I went looking for the ASIN for the above.  I think I'll invest; I'm in one of those "let's buy something" moods.  Cheapie Italian label, might be sonic crap, but what the hell, it's tax day....

This one is probably my favourite.  I have many, many Beethoven VC recordings and this is one of the three I turn to most frequently (the others being the first Faust - although this year's Berg coupling is good - and the Zehetmair which Sarge promoted as the greatest.  I also rate Hilary Hahn's recording very highly).

Thanks for the thumb-up; apparently I haven't wasted my money on rubbish, because I threatened to order it and I did....

So does the Tetzflaff/Zinman recording on Arte Nova--and, (just checked) according to the customer review on the Amazon page,  so does the Zehetmair!

ETA: On a completely unrelated note, this landed today,  a purchase off my wishlist originally prompted by a post in the SDCB thread (like several of my recent purchases, come to think of it.  Better start avoiding that thread for a bit!)
