Recordings of classical repertoire in the Fifties and Sixties were made during a
time of technical development, which is hardly given a thought in our day with
its global digitalization and mass reproduction. To appreciate the improvement
offered by analogue recording technology as opposed to a high-quality mono
reproduction, one can do no better than listen to the present rendition of
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3. Bruno Walter and his handpicked Columbia Symphony
Orchestra present this major orchestral work with its heroic, revolutionary
character as a grand symphonic undertaking. Thanks to the new studio technology,
Beethoven’s 'new path', and his daring experiment with musical form and content
is revealed with previously unheard of depth and amplitude. Just how prudently
Walter approaches the score is shown again and again in the highly detailed
reconstruction and finely chiseled rendition of passages for small ensembles.
Instead of depending upon brusque contrasts of the elements, Walter’s conducting
concentrates on exposing the wealth of differing styles and tonality in the
score. This strategy of balancing out the contrasts blazed a trail for today’s
unremitting search for the much-heralded original sound.
This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from
the master tapes through to the cutting head.
