KHCD-2012-048DL (STEREO) - Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 in b mnor, Op. 74 "Pathetique" - Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/Lovro von Matačić; Schubert: Symphony No. 8 in b minor, D. 759 "Unfinished" - Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/Vaclav Neumann - Two symphonic giants played by the great Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Von Matačić's interpretation is remarkable in the fact that it is generally free from personal idiosyncrasies, allowing the music to speak for itself. Neumann's Schubert, too, flows with a freedom from unnecessary fiddling with details. Both recordings were well recorded by Supraphon in 1968 (Tchaikovsky) and 1966 (Schubert), and the LPs themselves were near-mint condition.
