I don't know the recordings or engineering capabilities in those days.
Would someone other than the leaders of this thread care to make a
comment? It seems (to me) to be a bit of a stretch to say that a major
conductor allowed his orchestra to play out of tune ??? Or are we
talking about something more subtle, such as A=440 vs. A=446?
