I also have long sought out Klemperer's recordings in particular -- 
and also those of Szell, whose work in Mozart and Haydn in particular 
complements Klemperer's, I think (and who at least appreciated GG's

          To doubt everything or to believe everything
          are two equally convenient solutions; both
          dispense with the necessity of reflection.
