Don't know if you have this one on CD, Mravinsky conducting the Leningrad Philharmonic playing Symphony No. 12 OP. 112 "1917". It's on the Erato label and is an ADD recording. I find it to be excellent in performance with very good sound. I know you were looking for the USSR State Symphony but you might want to consider this CD as well.
Thank you...I recently found a copy of the 5th on Melodiya that shipped out of Europe/Russia; it has the 5th with Lenningrad and Song of the Forests with USSR State (I wish these pairings had been reversed!). It's excellent. I did also pick up the boxed set from Erato (12 CDs) recently and have found those recordings including the 12th that you mentioned above to be excellent as well! The others I picked up including the Alto release of the 8th with and the Regis release of the 11th; all with Mravinsky and Lenningrad, all excellent. Thank you for the help everyone, i will contact Peter F. in Toronto and see if he can help me locate a 5th with USSR State....
