I'm looking for an outstanding version of Symphony No 7 myself. so I thought I'd canvas some opinions as to which interpretations of each individual symphony are the 'best'.
My favourite two of beethoven's symphonies are 6 & 7. I've yet to find an excellent version of 7. so far Norrington's version of number 6 is perfect for me, but 7 is lacking something for me.
I've got DG Lps of Karajan & BPO absolutely destroying pretty much the whole cycle too.
the BPO / Andre Cluytens version of 7 seems to be not quite there either.
so pick your favourites...
