Boulez's earlier performance/recording for Sony is far superior to his DGG. Ansermet's performances are quite wonderful as are the ones by Maazel and Dutoit. For the most languorous performance I must recommend that of Rafael Fruhbeck De Burgos if you can still get hold of it. Michael Gielen and James Levine (RCA) have much to offer as well, especially the former. Lastly, let's not forget Antal Dorati who gave us the first complete recording--although the Mercury mono sound requires some tolerance.
