A note for Fritz Maisenbacher. (if he ever gets it). Pure German of Nordic Race! Swell- What is it? You mean ARIAN!!! Shame on you and whoever share the same thoughts! Violence, evil is that what your truly believe that the NINTH was inspired by?  I do not believe you have any idea what violence and evil looks like! You are a disgrace and your comment should just be burned. I dare you to come across violence and evil and at the same time in the background hear the notes and the chorus singing the NINTH!

i have come to like three renditions of beethoven's great 9 after listening them religiously and many others interestingly. they are toscanni's with the NBC, muti's with the CSO, and this one here. i like furtwangler's best, especially the beginning of the fourth movement. it sounds relaxed and balanced, projecting the vast human potentiality and his deep desire of harmony. in fact, the whole movement does.

No one can reach, or come close to the Furtwängler's interpretation of Beethoven's Ninth, even Karajan. Others just focus on those notes written on the score, but Furtwängler, is the ONLY ONE who can figure out what's the true meaning of this piece and what's the feeling of Beethoven when he was composing this piece. Therefore, Furtwängler's Beethoven's Ninth is definetly THE BEST interpretation of the piece and, when I'm saying Beethoven's Ninth, I'm saying Furtwängler's Beethoven's Ninth!!!

Ka Chun Chu I like to think that Furtwangler's & Solti's 9th were the best. They were both the best interpreters of Beethoven. Karajan's 9th is a joke with an absurd tempo.
