Ludwig Van Beethoven - Marcia Funebre (Symphony No.3)
Marcia Funebre, the second movement from Beethoven's Symphony No.3 ("Eroica").
From Brunswick 78rpm discs, recorded in 1929. Performed by the Berlin Philharmonic, Hans Pfitzner, conductor. According to whoever posted it to the Internet Archive: "A truly 19th century interpretation - this is probably very much the way it sounded when Wagner or Mahler conducted".
