It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

I was tempted to throw in a couple more - but I restrained myself! ;-)

We're all like blind men trying to describe an elephant based on what part of the animal they've touched (or, in our case, the subset of recordings of a given work we've actually heard!). As I've mentioned before, the closest I've come to hearing every available recording of a given standard repertoire work is with the Mahler Fifth, where I have (or have had) over 80 different recordings - but even in this work, I think that number represents only about half the total recordings that have been issued. And the more recordings of a given work I've heard, the less I've become convinced that there even is such a thing as "the best" one. Sure, I've got some favorites, but that's not the same, since each person's criteria include so many personal, subjective elements.
