Best #9 I've listened to
Christoph does an excellent job handling this symphony. The best #9 I've heard. Highly recommend.
I had season tickets for many years to the CSO. I am partial to recordings with Solti and the CSO. That being said: This recording of the 9th is amazing. Cleveland rocks.
Simply the best!
I recently counted that I own 14 different versions of the 9th ( well including the Clockwork Orange soundtrack). I always come back to Von Dohnanyi’s interpretation as my favorite. When I first heard this version on our local public radio it almost brought me to tears. The power, majesty, and clarity of this recording is exceptional. This would be the one I would take to the mythical desert island if I had only one piece of music to choose.
