    Symphonie Nr. 7 A-dur Op. 92

    I have that box set.

    In general I find that a particular conductor will not always provide the best interpretaion of all of a composer's compositions, so in the case of Beethoven and Mozart, I will have separate LPs of their works performed/conducted by those I think the best; but of course it's entirely subjective.

    Another box set of the Beethoven symphonies I have and like is that by Karl Böhm, conducting the Weiner Philharmoniker:

    Beethoven – Wiener Philharmoniker, Karl Böhm – 9 Symphonien



    Label: Deutsche Grammophon – 2721 154

    Country: Germany
    Released: 1972

    Style: Classical, Romantic

    Good LP - my favourite recording which uses period instruments.

    I like Beethoven, I know he’s not everyone’s cuppa tea, but along with Mozart, and Vivaldi probably a master of his art.

    I have nearly all his symphonies on two records, I have a good 3rd, 5th and 6th. I am not that keen on the rest of them in terms of the renditions/recordings.

    That’s where I find classical tricky, you might find a composition that you like but sometimes get put off by an odd interpretation in how it’s performed. I suppose it’s the one musical performance is everything, but some blues and jazz fans could also seek the perfect performance of a song or piece.

    I will see if the version is available at a reasonable price.

    Since it was released in 1970, the recording could well be part of the box set I mentioned earlier.
