These records are all shot. I had forgotten they were so bad. I send them anyway -- merely because I promised. The Bernstein Jingo is too fast, but at least it 'sounds.' Play it instead of the Mitrop[oulos] version. (I remember that there was very little rehearsal time at the Philharmonic.)
The 'Subjective' is probably the best played. Cryptic and Prophetic are possible. Ignore the rest.
