...I would recommend going on YouTube and listening to various excerpts from different recordings, then check Amazon to see if the CD is still available.

Some people love older recordings with big stars in the cast. Some love the sound you get from newer performances. Some like (or hate) a particular director -- it's all over the map.

There are also many sites that review recordings, like this one (see link). Note--that review was from 2004, so there might be a newer version to consider.
