My apologies for the extreme distortion starting about 4 minutes into the first movement.
As this distortion is present on all three copies of the Berg that I have acquired, I presume that there must have been a fault in the master or while the discs were being pressed.

Andante – Allegretto
Allegro – Adagio – Coda
