I am still sending David royalty checks for recommending this one to me.

My favorite is the Maazel/VPO recording on London.  It has been criticized for starting off too fast so there's not enough mystery in the beginning and stuff like that, but I find that far more interesting the slow beginnings of some other conductors.  As well, Maazel seems to have the brass spread out across the back of the orchestra, which provides a wonderful effect on the big climaxes, very exciting.  I love it. The analog recording is quite good, too.

That's the recording that made me fall in love with this symphony and it's still one of my favorite "hot" versions--those climaxes still give me chills every time!
