One could also say: Six times: Newyear celebrations 1968 with the
Berliner Philarmoniker. What I've got seems to be a private recording
though. I am lucky to have a good set of such. Many of those recordings
are very good (does a force do better when live and they belive they are
not recorded?), but in sometimes horrible sound, but I am not so sensitive
to clicks and noises. The 9th in question is however not so good.
