Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Rafael Kubelík
Decca SDD 119 (SXL 2104) 1965 pressing / 1959 matrices: ZAL3791 -4E / ZAL3792 -1E. Recorded: 28/9 September 1957 - Sofiensaal, Vienna
Not a highly regarded cycle - bought this (+ no.2 - have 1/4 as LXT) 30years back.
Performance described as 'flaccid' (similar to Barbirolli/VPO) however clean copies of the SXL's are scarce - technically fine with a slight side difference.
