The performance of the eighth is great, but the one on nineth is among the worst presentation. The ryhthem, speed variation all got wrong. Too hasty for the 1st movement (about 1 minute shorter than many versions of other conductors) and too slow
somewhere else.
By comparison, Abaddo's version is not good either with overplayed 1st movement. Karajan's version is better but still
far from great, with 2nd movement played too slow. Bernstein's
version is OK but not great.
The only version that rendered the great composition the best, in my humble opinion and limited knowledge, is the one of Bratislava Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lenard Ondrej.
It seems that Czech composers' misic are better presented by
Czech musicians. Unfortunately, this perfectly performed version
was very poorly recorded !
