Arturo Toscanini / NBC SO - Shostakovich. Symphony 7 - 'Leningrad' - NBC Concert 1942

Dmitri Shostakovitch: 
Symphony no.7 in C major, op.60   "Leningrad" 
I: Allegretto  ~  II: Moderato (Poco allegretto)  ~  III: Adagio  ~  IV: Allegro non troppo
The Complete Broadcast     FLAC  Mega Download
The NBC Symphony Orchestra  conducted by  Arturo Toscanini 
Live Broadcast: 19 July 1942 - Studio 8-H, NBC Radio City Studios. New York.      
A FLAC file appeared on 'Symphonyshare' - from which this derives; previously there was a 256mp3.  The recording, off-air, is presumably studio-made as the concert runs without breaks - other than about a dozen 'gaps' (and overlaps) - which I have remedied. There was considerable Electrical Storm interference - together with a variety of clicks, etc.  The enormous amount of re-editing includes a slight re-equalisation.
