I agree. Same goes for Mozart, especially symphonies - I simply can't
stand it when conductors (voluntarily or not) can't keep the tempo.

As for 'Romantic' music (but also 'Baroque') I think there is space for
intelligent agogics - again what I think is important is the concept of
'beat' (more in the way ethnomusicologists intend it), that is.. the
tempo may locally fluctuate, but the listener should have the sensation
of a steady beat/flow... simple in theory hard to achieve in practice.
Although not perfect this is one of my favourite interpretations of the
Fifth (not to mention I love the conducting in general, the facial
expressions, the way he addresses instruments..) - in my humble opinion
tempo here is managed very well (and notice he is conducting by heart):

When I listen to the Magnificat (but Bach in general) I can't stop
myself from rhythmically fidgeting, sometimes with some 'armchair
conducting', not to mention humming - which probably makes me look quite
weird when on the metro :)
