Vintage Recording of Huppertz Metropolis themes

I don't know if anyone else had come across this, but it's fascinating to hear bits of the score for Metropolis conducted by Huppertz himself.

I have heard this before but thanks for posting. I found it interesting in that the "Metropolis Motiv" seemed to be taken at a slower tempo.
