3. Arturo Toscanini: 5th Symphony
Arturo Toscanini's 5th Symphony recording is justly one of the most respected and revered readings of a Beethoven symphony out there. Legend has it that Toscanini could often be heard humming along to the music from the conductor's podium - thankfully not in this case.
