This rare Bruno Walter recording is a real revelation


A post here a few years ago discussed how the legendary conductor Bruno Walter was a disciple of the Austrian philosopher, educationist and founding figure in the Theosophy movement Rudolf Steiner. Theosophy is a syncretic tradition, but the discovery on Amazon of the recording seen above was still a surprise. Bruno Walter was of course one of the great interpreters of Wagner; which gives a whole new meaning to the question Are we ready for an Islamic interpretation of Wagner?
