Louis Lane in Beethoven's "Prometheus"

I don't usually upload records that are currently available, but I'm going to make an exception here. I recently bought the period-instrument version of Beethoven's ballet "The Creatures of Prometheus" on Decca (George Petrou & Armonia Atenea), which I liked very much. The only other recording I have of this relative rarity is that by Louis Lane & the Cleveland Orchestra, where Lane was assistant to George Szell for over 20 years, although by this time (1967) he was Associate Conductor. It's a good version, but only available as part of a 10-disc download. So here it is, freed from that expensive download box:-

I hope you like this version.
