Re: Walter's 1955 French Recording of Brahms Symphony No. 2
Posted by Stephen Greenbank on August 7, 2017, 3:58 pm, in reply to "Walter's 1955 French Recording of Brahms Symphony No. 2"
Rob, the Bruno Walter recordings of Brahms 2, Mozart 38 and Wagner Siegfried Idyll dated 5 May 1955 have been reissued by Tahra TAH587/589 and are marked as live. Also Disques Montaigne TCE 8831 issued them. Both are deleted. The link for the latter set is here, and clearly indicates that the performances derive from a live concert. I would imagine the Sony booklet is incorrect in stating it's a studio recording. http://www.trustysound.com/products/254-walter-conducts-mozart-and-brahms
