Furtwangler - Beethoven's 9th on EMI (1951), Music and Arts (wartime) Tahra (Lucerne festival - last performance) The EMI from '51 has the best sound - in mono. Also Von Karajan Beethoven's 3rd from the 1961 cycle but not from the later cycle's. Jochum's Bruckner cycle either on EMI or DG - very similar - also Wand's Bruckner 4 on RCA.
