BEETHOVEN
Symphony No. 5 in c minor, Op. 67
Symphony No. 6 in F, "Pastorale", Op. 68

Leningrad Philharmonic
EVGENI MRAVINSKY

1949 mono recordings
note: from Old Melodiya LPs in not great conditions
Some pops, cracks etcetera at the begining/ending of every side.
A better "remastering" was too long and difficult for me...  sorry!

Hi Guido,

I just discovered your blog-very nice! I've already enjoyed the fine Ormandy/Prokofiev offering. Good stuff caught in that conductor's prime.

I'm looking forward to this Mravinsky post. I did discover that the 2nd movement of the Pastorale is broken. If you can repost it, that would be super.

Thanks!

Fred

Hallo Fred!
Thank you for your appreciation.

the 2nd movement is broken?
oops... I'll check & repost very soon.

Guido said...

Just checked & listened for Pastorale 2nd mov: seems ok, have you tried to download again or unpack using alternative software as Ace, 7zip etc?

Fred said...

Yes, I have tried unzipping 3 times with 7 zip. Could you report just the 2nd movment? Many thanks.

Guido said...

@Fred: here's the link for "pastoral" 2nd mov.
