    • Don Quixote – Wallenstein/New York Philharmonic Orchestra
    • Ein Heldenleben – RPO (this recording, on a Capitol LP Release, contains a difficult to explain disconnect between the two sides of the orchestra, as 1 side plays a measure behind the other. This oddity takes place just after the second brass fanfare just at the end of side 1. This strange moment does not happen on the CD or EMI LP release. Can someone out there explain this? It is clearly not just a missed mistake by the orchestra, but a major mastering error. Please post your answer here, but you will have to be a musician who can follow the dense scoring in Strauss's Ein Heldenleben.)
