HD-Vinyl 24/96 (MFP) Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 3 (Walter)

All thanks for this go to our friend Lemarquis
Walter’s Eroica, recorded in January 1958 and his third studio recording after those he made in 1941 and 1949 with the New York Phil, is an excellent “traditional” reading. It may be exceptionable to call it that, because that kind of interpretive approach wasn’t dominant before World War II; it became more so after. Tempos are almost always on the slow side, a far cry not only from Beethoven’s controversially fast metronome marks but even from what the tempo indications at the beginning of the outer movements seem to suggest: “Allegro con brio” (1st movement), “Allegro molto” (finale).
