Well said. All very accurate observations IMO, and they sure line up with my experiences.

From Karajan's '77 recordings of these symphonies & apparently heavier & more 'fiery' than
his '63 version. 
Wonderfully spacious, powerful sound that is a treat through headphones.

Recently came across a recommendation for this HIP Beethoven cycle



well reviewed by https://www.gramophone.co.uk/review/beethoven-symphonies-0

Have as yet only really listened to the Eroica but I definitely like what I hear and am looking forward to slowly working through the rest whilst comparing them with other performances in my collection.

I agree, Tony, it’s absolutkey stunning. The Eroica is one of the very best recordings available. It’s HIP, but it’s not dry, cold or any of the other things people sometimes think of in that area. Very human, very exciting.

The dynamics of the crescendos & percussion on the Symphonic Dances is breathtaking.
I don't think I've ever heard such slam & impact from an orchestral recording.

I hope you enjoy the Rachmaninov Tony.

Well known & frequently played recording of this great Romantic symphony.
From the late Andre Previn.
