Sorry Chris

I'm just finding Christopher Hogwood's Fifth a wee bit tame. I can't quite put my finger on it, but those crucial opening notes were just a little less than enthusiastic, and the second movement just a hair too slow...

I dunno. You just gotta have Von Karajan and his boys.

No two ways about it.

Yeah, Karajan, Toscanini, Furtwaengler, Klemperer, Solti ... give me those guys any day rather than the wusses' Beethoven peddled by Hogwood or, worse still, Norrington.
