Re: There are many excellent Muti recordings

Muti recorded the full Beethoven Symphony cycle with Philly..... I think it could be out-of-print, however.

I love Muti's Beethoven 6, but his Beethoven 7 sounds too much like Kleiber and Karajan....

The disgusting thing is I don't recall Dutoit recording a Beethoven cycle with any orchestra. It seems like every conductor does one or two amongst them that are not so hot (save for maybe Furtwangler, one of only few who get the Ninth mostly right), but I think Dutoit is capable of producing as solid of a cycle as anyone I've heard. (I did notice Dutoit didn't have a score in front of him in that YouTube clip. So apparently, he's very familiar with at least that one Beethoven work.)
