Correction: I forgot that Brahms Piano Concerto No.1 with Katchen/LSO was also missing from the old box.
- Beethoven: Fidelio Overture - London Symphony
- Beethoven Symphony 9 rehearsal (26 minutes) - London Symphony
- Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique - Vienna Philharmonic
- Brahms: Symphony 2 - Vienna Philharmonic
- Brahms Pioano Concerto 1 - Katchen, London Symphony
- Mendelssohn: Midsummer Night's Dream - Vienna Philharmonic
- Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherezade - London Symphony
- Schubert: Ballet Music Number 1 from Rosamunde - Vienna Philharmonic
(I'm pretty sure Ballet Music No.1 is in the new box, but Tower Records doesn't provide a detailed breakdown of the Rosamunde music)
First Release in the new box: rehearsal of Ravel Daphnis et Chloe
Missing from both boxes: Beethoven Leonore 3 Overture
A number of Monteux/LSO Beethoven recordings (+ Brahms Tragic Overture) were issued posthumously, but Decca keeps forgetting Leonore 3.
It apparently was released on CD in Japan, but I have been unable to find it.
Bonus: The new 24 CD box costs less than the old 20 CD box.
This this is the special Tower/Japan release that included the Leonore #3:
It seems to be available. To order from the U.S. you'd have to order
through a third party, like White Rabbit.
