HVK’s 1966 Berlin Symph. performance of the 5th has just been reinstated on You Tube after an absence. I feel it is the greatest documented live musical performance in history.

Hopefully youtube will reinstate HVK’s 9th symphony performance. I don't know where or when it was performed but judging by the attire and glasses it was late 60’s or 70’s in Europe. Two parts, 30 plus minute each. The cinematography was outstanding, even with youtube’s grainiest. I'd like to find it on DVD. I had it bookmarked but it disappeared last year I think.
