Please disregard my previous review of this recording. As time has passed, this Bruno Walter performance has grown on me. This Bruckner 9, to my mind now, has some of the qualities of inner dynamism and spirit of his later, studio recording. Though not in the later studio recordings' class, this recording is not a waste of time.
This Bruckner 9 has some of that typical Walter warmth and spirituality, coupled with the New York Philharmonics' legendary precision.

I bought this recording, mainly for the reason that I feel that Bruno Walter is the best Bruckner conductor there ever was.(his Beethoven, for me, is usually dissapointing) I still feel this way, despite the fact that this Bruckner 9 is very, very much a letdown-in all aspects.
The Beethoven overture is passable, at best, but the Bruckner! This qualifies as Walters' worst Bruckner recording, ever. The performance is dull, uninspired, and limp, and the sound quality-despite the recent restoration-is a letdown. What a bad introduction to this conductor, if this is your first Walter purchase.
Allow me to say, that his later stereo, studio recording is an incredible improvement in all areas-a breath of fresh air, compared to this.
This is definitely Bruno Walter on a bad day.
