Quote from: ethan417 on June 09, 2020, 08:08:53 PMHi EveryoneI hope you are safe and well.Being that I have some time on my hands, I thought it might be fun to explore a quality performance/recording of the 9 symphonies. I'm looking for suggestions.I grew up listening to the George Szell recordings - which I own.After a lot of reading - I realize that there is no perfect box set. I realize that my question is subjective.Here is the focus of my search.Great interpretation without regard to modern sonic quality.Great interpretation with great sonic quality.Finally a question about remastering.For some recordings like the Herbert Von Karajan 1963 cycle, there are multiple CD releases. Which one is sonically the best?Another example of multiple CD release - Nikolaus Harnoncourt & Chamber Orchestra of Europe - there is a 1991 release and also a 2008 release - same recording. Is there a quality difference?Many thanks for your help.- Ethan
