Notes & Reviews:

Walton's technical gifts were nothing short of amazing, not least his ability to control absolutely the power, reach and duration of a given note at a given moment in a particular work in a particular hall. None regarded Walton more highly than Herbert von Karajan. At the time of his appointment as conductor for life of the Berlin Philharmonic in 1955, he told the founder of the Philharmonia Orchestra, Walter Legge: "If we were not old friends I would immediately engage Walton for my Berlin orchestra".
