Best classical recordings...ever! - Page 24
I have the same with his string quartets, his symphonies not so much though..
I think from a then contemporary point of view yes..but most certainly not since Mahler and Shostakovich..I can't help myself from hearing with 20th century made ears
I love Beethoven for his chamber- and solo piano music, for me it's were lies his obvious genius
Experience brings understanding and appreciation. The more you listen to, the wider your tastes will become. Always push the edge.
I really like Bernstein's New York Mahler cycle. I got the Bernstein symphonies box on Sony and it's uniformly good. (Can't say the same for the Abbado or Gardiner box sets unfortunately.)
Ahhh, lucky you, you're in for a treat
