"The Walter fingerprints are all here. These interpretations are genial, plain-spoken, and classically-based. There's no sense of a disciplinarian or a perfectionist at the podium - for better or for worse! Melody is emphasized, and there is suaveness and a sense of humor present which seem to have been Walter's legacy from the Vienna Philharmonic, which he also conducted extensively. But here, the intensity has been raised a notch or two higher. There's a volatility, an animal excitement present here." (ClassicalNet)
