Beethoven Symphony No 5 & Mozart Symphony No 35 - Bruno Walter Columbia Symphony Orchestra
eXemplary performance of this way over played (albeit great) piece. but this takes it from ordinary to eXtraordinary.
Scruffy describes the SQ - congested and rather scratchy upper strings in this Columbia recordings. And the readings are definitely offputting - big-band style and often painfully slow; where they should soar, they sag, and particularly in the final movements of both symphonies. Not one of Walter's best - sorry.
