Robert Schumann: Symphony No.1 in B flat major, Op. 38 “Spring” – Serge Koussevitzky, Boston Symphony Orchestra (1939)

Serge Koussevitzky
conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra 
in Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony No.1 in B flat, Op.38,
on Victor album M-655 from 1939.

which was unusual in the 78rpm era. The recording is very loud and got heavily worn
by its original owner.
