    Looking for suggestions other than the ones I've had, which are Bernstein/VPO, Tennstedt/studio, Szell, Boulez. I have Herbig now, and like it the best so far

    in that movement (the rest seems overwrought, but I'm not an extravert). Suggestions welcome... any thoughts on Haitink, either Concertgebouw or BPO?

    PS: I thought Boulez/VPO was very well done but somehow totally uninvolving, for reference.

    According to this recent article:

    - I became fixated on John Barbirolli’s recording of the Mahler Sixth, with its zombie tread in the first movement and its helter-skelter intensity in the finale.
