Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

This new transfer of Bruno Walter’s pioneering 1947 recording of the Fifth Symphony is welcome, particularly as it comes with the Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jugendzeit, which Desi Halban recorded later the same year in Los Angeles, with Bruno Walter at the piano. Those who grew up with this set probably feel that it has never been surpassed in authenticity of feeling and emotional intensity. It is taut and concentrated: Walter takes 60 minutes 52 seconds, as opposed to the 75 minutes of Bernstein or 72 of Karajan. The Obert-Thorn transfer is the best we have had so far.
