    This is one of my favourite classical pieces, I rather like this version and I also have the 1971 recording by Boston Symphony Orchestra • William Steinberg.

    I would love to know what you consider the best recording/version of this piece so I could have a listen. Thanks

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    The best version I have of this classic, full of attack, dynamics, sweeps along with great musicality, feeling and detail. If you love this piece get a copy.

    Sorry Adrian, I can't help you there - the only bit of Also Sprach Zarathustra I have is the opening track on an LP of the soundtrack to the film '2001 A Space Odessey'. And that was bought, not for the Richard Strauss, but for the Ligeti.

    No worries, on TAS I was recommended "the Eugene Ormandy recording with the Philadelphia Orchestra on EMI", I have found a reasonably priced NM copy on Discogs, so when it arrives and I have had a listen I will let you know what I think.

    By the way the whole piece is very well worth listening to, there are several parts of it I am sure I have heard in films or TV documentaries/ads, apart from the opening that is used in 2001.
