I agree. But it was the Haydn, which I got first, which made me comfortable enough to get the Beethoven. So it's Gurn's (and his thread's) fault!  :D :-* Because everything Haydn related is Gurn's fault!  :P

That's fair 0:)

Me, three, for the Endellion.  But I also made a needle drop of the Juilliard.

The 1964-1970 set?

Did the Juilliard record Op. 54 more than once?  I have it on Epic and the blue cover CBS Lp posted earlier (my copy seems to be a Mexican CBS pressing).

Here's som fun for y'all, a ranking of the 104 symphonies by "some guy":

I think there is only one Juilliard recording of op.54; as I only have an mp3 or FLAC someone else made from an LP I don't know details.

The guy with the symphonies should maybe have taken a little more time to listen more thoroughly then results would not have been as ridiculous (although one has to admit that they are quite unpredictable: Nr.85 among the weakest 25?!)

I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Sorry, I thought you meant Juilliard's Beethoven QTs.
