Notes & Reviews:

When this performance was first released (on Bruno Walter Society LP No. BWS-742 in 1980) critic Mortimer H. Frank wrote in the USA journal Fanfare: "I have always felt that Bruno Walter was at the height of his powers during the years 1941-54. Certainly his recordings from that period reveal a more flamboyant, disciplined, and energetic conductor than the Walter who - during his last years (1957-61), when he was in his '80s and recovering from two heart attacks...This is well illustrated in this newly released Beethoven Ninth, recorded in concert on November 13, 1947.
