This is a recorded live concert by Yevgeny Mravinsky and his Leningrad Philharmonic, taped in East Berlin at Deutsche Staatsoper on 25 May 1956 while they were on tour in East Germany. Mravinsky was a 100% musician down to the last hair on his body. His live performances are famous in its commitment to the music and all the risks involved in accomplishing this feat. This East German radio broadcast has never been published before.
