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


i like Carlos interpretation of the 7th.

his 5th though, the one performance I 've heard is too "fluid" and very shrilly (i've got a pair of klipsch rb-61 speakers). That finale is suppose to come at you and surprise you. He just goes loud all the way through that you're in essence not "shocked" that the finale is coming. It finishes and you're left wondering, oh it just ended.
