Notes & Reviews:

At this point in his life a refugee from the war in Europe, Bruno Walter is heard to conduct works of Mozart, Dvorák, Schubert and Schumann during his first decade of exile in America, 1940-48. Featuring both live and studio recordings by the New York Philharmonic and the NBC Symphony, these important sound documents, in which we here a somewhat more dynamic podium presence than his still important later recorded efforts conducting the Columbia Symphony, are the first chapters of Bruno Walter's American odyssey that lasted for two full decades until his death in 1962 at age 85.

It had been always said that our knowledge of Bruno Walter's performing art is based upon the recordings the conductor realized in the US at the end of a long career. Many are indeed quite incredible, but to find the power typical of this conductor it is necessary look at the American recordings of the 1940s. This release collects four such recordings; in addition to works of Mozart, Dvorak and Schubert is Robert Schumann's poetical and beautiful Symphony No, 4, op. 120 in an interpretation far from the German tradition: more genuine, touching and deep.
