conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra
in Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony No.1 in B flat, Op.38,
on Victor album M-655 from 1939.
Koussevitzky even takes all the repeats prescribed by Schumann in his recording,
which was unusual in the 78rpm era. The recording is very loud and got heavily worn
by its original owner.
Player: BSR UA25 mounted in Canadian-made Shelbern console.
