Product Description

CD87672 Beethoven SYMPHONY 2- Kondrashin WDR

Yes, 1979 seems like a likely year. This is from the Wikipedia entry on Kondrashin:

"Exile to Western Europe: He left the Soviet Union in December 1978 while touring in the Netherlands and sought political asylum there, whereupon the Soviet regime immediately banned all his previous recordings. He took the post of Permanent Guest Conductor of Amsterdam's Concertgebouw Orchestra in 1978 and remained in that position until his death. He also established a brief but fruitful collaboration with the Vienna Philharmonic. He died in Amsterdam from a heart attack on the day after he conducted Mahler's First Symphony with the North German Radio Symphony Orchestra."

He died on 7 March 1981. FK Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 2 in D, op. 36

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
