Manufacturer Description

He was Mahler's disciple and friend in Vienna before World War I, then went on to become one of the most illustrious conductors of the century. Accordingly, the recordings that Bruno Walter made for American Columbia between 1941 and 1961, the year before his death, have always enjoyed a special authoritative status. Sony Classical presents his entire Columbia Masterworks discography together for the first time in a single release of 77 CDs, with his complete stereo recordings on 31 CDs newly remastered from the original 2- and 3-track analogue tapes and 29 mono recordings remastered from the original analogue master discs and tapes using 24 bit / 192 kHz technology, presenting many early recordings for the first time on CD on Sony Classical. An all-embracing survey of Bruno Walter s recorded achievements. Symphonies, overtures and other orchestral works by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner Wagner, Schumann, Dvo ├ík, Richard Strauss, Smetana and others, performed by the New York Philharmonic and the Columbia Symphony Orchestra. Concertos, opera and song recitals in collaborations with Rudolf Serkin, Zino Francescatti, Pierre Fournier, Nathan Milstein, Isaac Stern, Joseph Szigeti, Leonard Rose, Dési Halban, Lotte Lehmann, Lily Pons, Eleanor Steber, Ezio Pinza and George London.
