Digital restorations (2004) by John Wilson, assisted by  Aaron Z. Synder.



Not for sale in the USA.



When the individual recordings first appeared, here is what prominent reviews said:



SYMPHONY NO. 1



"I haven?t heard a more exquisitely phrased, more potent First than this."

Saturday Review



SYMPHONY NO. 2 IN D MAJOR, OP. 36



SYMPHONY NO. 4 IN B-FLAT MAJOR, OP. 60



"Walter has done a fine job, with plenty of gusto, vigor and singing gentleness."

High Fidelity



SYMPHONY NO. 3 IN E-FLAT MAJOR, OP. 55, "EROICA"



"This will be the ultimate in ?Eroica? playing for a good while?a dedicated performance, taut, ultra-clear, beautifully phrased."

Saturday Review



SYMPHONY NO. 5 IN C MINOR, OP. 67



"This is the only version I would be interested to possess, both for the quality of the recording and interpretation. Bruno Walter avoids grim fierceness without sacrificing tension; the woodwinds play with mellifluous tone; the lower strings are vigorously healthy in the scherzo."

The Gramophone



SYMPHONY NO. 6 IN F MAJOR, OP. 68 "PASTORAL" ?With the Philadelphia Orchestra



"I have not for years enjoyed a recorded Beethoven symphony so well."

The Gramophone



SYMPHONY NO. 7 IN A MAJOR, OP. 92





"Top rank?the all-important rhythmic distinctions, the proper swinging six-eight of the first movement vs. the pounding short threes of the scherzo, are superbly realized."

Saturday Review



SYMPHONY NO. 8 IN F MAJOR, OP. 93



"There is an admirable firmness in Walter?s playing, an unmistakable enthusiasm,?vital and compelling reproduction."

The American Record Guide



SYMPHONY NO. 9 IN D MINOR, OP. 125, "CHORAL"



"Dr. Walter?s performance is the most romantically aspiring of all, harmonically weightier than the others and voluptuously phrased."

-- High Fidelity
