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 - rerecorded in stereo with an inferior ad hoc orchestra the bulk of his basic repertory.
