    ^^^ I would say that the selected recordings for the above are currently all pretty stable (though I'm always open to recommendations). Least stable are my selections for Symphony No. 9 in C Major "The Great", Tristan und Isolde, and Grande Messe des morts -- each of which I change my mind on which is the best recording from time to time.

    In this century and Spotify, we can carry the entire musical history in our musical devices. But playing along,

    All of Bach's keyboard works.
    All of Chopin's keyboard works.

    Done.

    Well there is also no electricity/battery - how are you going to listen to your discs?

    Nowadays, it is more likely to get internet at any given spot on Earth than to get electricity.

    Yes! There's a few other renditions I might choose on any given day (Reiner, Levine, Janowski...), but, generally, I'd have no problem proclaiming that Kleiber's could be the very best recording of the 4th -- possibly Brahms' greatest work! (I go back and forth between his 4th, his Violin Concerto and his German Requiem)

    These three would make my top4 Brahms, but my #1 would be the clarinet quintet.
