NO.9 is pretty good along with NO. 7

This doesn't appear to be the place for an intelligent conversation about Beethoven, but does anyone have any ideas whether it's possible to perform the beginning of the 5th Symphony (da da da dum, da da da dum) without adding a whole extra bar after the first dum?

Well cbrody, I'm not a conductor, but I don't see why one couldn't perform the opening withough adding an extra bar. I'm not sure how it would sound though. I'm guessing the extra bar wasn't written into the score by beethoven himself, but is rather an embellishment used by conductors.

What extra bar? The symphony doesn't begin on the first beat of the bar, if that's what you mean... There's what is known as an anacrusis. I believe the precise way it's written is a rest, then three quavers at the end of the first bar (the "da da da"), followed by a semibreve(the "dum").

It's incredible how many different interpretations you can find of Romantic composers (Beethoven to Liszt, broadly taken). This is probably because an enormous range of emotions can be expressed through this style. Some say there is less room for personal interpretation with contemporary composers, although I doubt this is always correct. And if you want a really controversial interpretation of a strongly traditional classical piece of music, try Bach's Goldberg variations played by Glenn Gould ...

Don't know about classical music that much actually. What i do know 'le pastorale' of
L. v. Beethoven is a most fantastic piece of work/art. To me it's a representation of inner peace and celebration. Not too complicated but divined by the touch of someone who really understands the heart of music. Le Pastorale is like an invitation for purity, natural and sincere. To be a river, blooming colours into ordinary thoughts that lights up the elements of ( my ) forsaken desires. It still is just music but poetry at the same time.
