In all, I adore this music and listen to it several times a week. The Bernstein/NY Philharmonic and the New Zealand symphony versions are very, very close. Thanks to digital recordings, we can now hear all the instruments, subtleties and drama that was lost in analog. Digital is most kind to we serious music lovers.
And what else is there really besides classical music. It is God's gift to mankind. :)
And it has been a long time since I've posted on Dr. Len's web here. I've missed it. :)
