Schubert C major recommendation?

Recommended Posts

Every recording I listen to of the Shubert C major, the first movement is ungodly slow, and it should go not much faster, but certainly more faster. Quarter =84-88, instead of 69-72, which is agonizing.

Even Bernstein is too slow.

Can someone recommend me a recording that is nice and fast without being too fast?

Knapp / Erich Kleiber / Rother / Maazel etc

Did you ever hear "his" Nimrod?

Bernstein was a passionate artist given to extremes; I happen to think this "Nimrod" is perfectly lovely, and at appropriate tempo.

Thank you for suggestion. I was very impressed of Erich Kleiber. I played under the son a couple of times and father is far far superior. I do not know Rother and can you please indicate a recording of him on YT ?

For the 9th Symphony, try Toscanini.  There is a famous (and bad-sounding because of wartime 78 masters) recording with the Philadelphia Orchestra, from 1941.  His later one with the NBC is also pretty good.  Excellent choice of tempi all the way through.
