    My favourite is the 3rd.

    Sets I own: Gardiner; Harnoncourt; Konwitschny; Sinopoli; Solti; Zinman.

    I actually think they are all very good! (I was contrasting this feeling with that in regard to the available Schubert sets: a very different situation in my opinion). I grew up with the Solti, so have a nostalgic attachment. If I had to pick one, it would be between Konwitschny and Sinopoli.

    I would urge all Schumann lovers to try Venzago.....A different Schumann. A love or hate experience.

    Never knew Mahler re-orchestrated these!

    What are the biggest changes he made? More "colorful"? Any textural differences? Is it leaner overall?
