Rare Toscanini 002: Brahms - BBC Symphony





Sound quality is poor, but both performances are awesome.
Especially German Requiem is much, much better than in NBC 1943 version.

In fine sound, as appendix, the studio recording of Brahms Tragic overture (again with BBC SO).

Great share. Thank you, Guido.

I enjoy these performances as much as the new state-of-the-art recordings.
