Bruno Walter - Beethoven: Eroica - Carnegie Hall, 1957
This is the famous performance given in memory of Arturo Toscanini by Mr. Walter. It was originally released in 1973 on Lp by the predecessor company Educational Media Associates, to Music and Arts. The performance was later released on CD and was an international best seller for over a decade. Deleted about four years ago, this title has been re-issued in response to wide-spread demand. In his review in Fanfare Mortimer H. Frank found the reading "closer to a Toscanini-like leanness than to the weightiness Walter usually favored."
