I've been listening to a recording of Schubert's 9th recently - to put it lightly, I had to wait in the car for almost an hour this afternoon with nothing else to do but listen to this symphony... the time passed in what felt like seconds.
The recording I have is one from a BBC Music Magazine coverdisc, recorded live at the BBC Proms back in '91. I couldn't really fault the performance but, as it's a live recording in front of an audience, it contains a fair amount of sneezing and coughing.
Therefore, I offer myself infront of this forum's collective expertise and ask: are there any recordings of this symphony that you'd particularly recommend as a replacement? Are there any I should avoid?
Many thanks in advance
