    • Herbert Pauls says:

      I think you are right — did some spot checks of key points (oboe solo etc) and they match perfectly. At first I had gone to Scherchen and Leibowitz because they have a very similar style to this performance, with similarly quick and unyielding tempos (some of the fastest in the catalogue, probably). They were indeed almost identical, but occasional details did not quite match.

      Edlinger it is!
