Wiener Symphoniker Archive
STRAUSS family: Ov. to “Die Zigeunerbaron”, Polkas and Waltzes – Wiener Symphoniker /Manfred Honeck – 48/24 download

MAHLER: Symphony No. 10 in F-sharp Major (first two movements); Symphony No. 3 in D Minor – Hildegard Roessl-Majdan, contralto/Wiener Saengerknaben/Wiener Symphoniker/F. Charles Adler – Music & Arts
Mahler from one of the composer’s original acolytes, and so it presents what might well have transpired in an authentic Mahler performance.
