Walter's Eroica, recorded in January 1958 and his third studio recording after those he made in 1941 and 1949 with the New York Phil, is an excellent "traditional" reading. By that I mean that the tempos are almost always on the slow side, a far cry not only from Beethoven's controversially fast metronome marks but even from what the tempo indications at the beginning of the outer movements seem to suggest: "Allegro con brio" (1st movement), "Allegro molto" (finale).

Walter's first movement is spacious, leisurely, powerful in a heavy way rather than violent and biting like Toscanini's (Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3), Scherchen's (Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 3 & 6), Bernstein's (Symphony 3 " Eroica ", The Bernstein Century - Beethoven: Symphony no 3 'Eroica' / Bernstein, New York PO) or Leibowitz' (Symphonies No. 1 & 3). In fact it moves at the same pace as Furtwängler's (I am referring here to his final, 1952 recording, Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3 "Eroica"), but it certainly feels faster, because Walter benefits from much better (and stereo) sound, his accents are more muscular (but not biting and explosive like Toscanini's), his basses crisp and his brass blazing. But the overall impression it conveys is that of gentleness.
