The Philharmonic-Symphony of 1942 was going through a bit of a rough patch at the height of WWII, with numerous players called up for military service. Still the players respond well and vividly to Walter’s wishes, in this account of the “Resurrection” that is noticeably more rhetorical and dramatic than his several later recordings. It is tempting to speculate that the Walter’s recent uprooting from both his German homeland and his adopted Vienna refuge, combined with the traumatic events of Pearl Harbor just a month before this concert, may have manifested themselves in a certain ferocity evident in this account of the “Resurrection.” Walter’s missionary zeal for Mahler’s multidimensional music provided a ready outlet for such a vivid response to world events.
