Pierre Monteux, Boston Symphony
"Tchaikovsky: Symphony no. 6 'Pathetique'" (Vinyl)

Although most images online are for an RCA "Living Stereo" pressing, I have an earlier shaded dog in mono.

Tchaikovsky finished his final symphony in 1893.  He also led the premiere of the composition.  This is considered the last of Tchaikovsky's greatest three symphonies (the others being his fourth and fifth.)

This recording is beautifully captured.  It reminded me that I need to replace the belt on my SOTA.  Sustained pitches have become a bit warbly...
