Eroica - Krivine

I've just read the marvellous Richard Osborne article about the many Beethoven's Eroica recording through the years. I only would like he have included Emmanuel Krivine recording - since for me this is the best original intrument version. What do you think? 

Eroica - Krivine

Whilst I'm not sure that any one recording can be the best I agree about Krivine being very good indeed. Every time I listen to the number of recordings I own I hear something to change my mind!

Forget the "original instrument version" and let each (HIP or not) version stand on it's own merits.

Eroica(s)?

Very well put by Torontonian. I may add that you may forget the "original instrument versions" and listen to the Asahina cycle on Exton. You may find some truly great and memorable Beethoven (live) performances in stunning recordings.
