HD-Vinyl 24/96 (MFP) Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphonies No. 1 & No. 2 (Walter)

front-small-boxset
All thanks for this go to our friend Lemarquis
Even Bruno Walter, who in old age was a softer conductor than anyone before or since, didn’t dare to swathe Haydn in romantic velvet. But Beethoven’s Sym. 1 and 2 gave him that opportunity. These cross-over works from the world of Haydn can be successfully played as heroic precursors (by Klemperer, Karajan and Bernstein, for example), but Walter strives to make them sunny and carefree, and his approach works.
In their way, these symphonies are the ideal introduction to Walter’s notions about Beethoven.

  1. Bob is very grateful for this work also, Alf and Lemarquis.

    I’ve always been impressed by both Columbia Records, who formed the Columbia Symphony Orchestra for making records. Perhaps the most important recordings the orchestra made were with conductor Bruno Walter,(and others) who recorded highly regarded interpretations of Beethoven’s, Brahms’s, Bruckner’s, Mahler’s and Mozart’s symphonies. With this orchestra, Walter made his only stereo recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 9, which he had conducted at its world premiere.
    And, then David Sarnoff with Radio Corporation of America (RCA) hired players to form the RCA Symphony Orchestra for Arturo Toscanini, and others to play on the air weekly. Late 1930’s was a hey day for American Radio.

    Bob
