My Vaughan Williams symphony collection is patchwork: Adrian Boult #1, 7, 8 & 9; Slatkin #3, 4 & 5; Previn: 1,2 & 7 ; Barbirolli: 2 (excellent rec!); Bernstein: 4 (?). I think that's it.

If I had to buy a box set, it would probably be Boult because he seems to have the best feeling and balance for RVW.
