I love Karajan for beethoven as I feel he focuses on the best parts and speeds through some of the slower movements (gross simplification)

but mozart was always intricate and complex but I must admit my lack of knowledge with mozart composers.

Who do you guys recommend?

Leonard Bernstein for the 40th, the soundtrack to Elvira Madigan for piano concertos. I don't listen to much Mozart beyond the 40th and his concertos...

Also, get Carlos Kleiber's Beethoven's 5th and 7th. Smile
