Konstantin Ivanov conducts Glazunov’s Fifth Symphony

Konstantin Ivanov’s 1963 EMI/Melodiya recording of Glazunov’s Symphony No.5 is well-regarded, but his earlier account for Supraphon with the Czech PO is little known. This issue appears in the WERM 1951-2 supplement as a reissue, so the LP would appear to be from around 1950, and the timing of one or two conspicuous edits suggest a 78rpm source.
