-The first three are almost co-equal but I give the edge to Steinberg.
Ordered the Steinberg only last week. Coupled with Also Sprach. Then I read that Musicweb covers the SACD version as one of the CDs of the Month of Juneuh. The Steinberg has always been around in many different re-incarnations, so finally I relented. I have Handley, plus a few others, but none has really wowed me as this fabulous music should.
I gave thought to HvK, one of the Boults, Jurowski, but the Steinberg won out. I read that Steinberg only started to study the score at well past 70 years of age.
