Bernstein's interpretation of the finale is not my favorite. I played this piece as a member of a university symphony orchestra and our conductor (appropriately, in my opinion) took the final tempo marking at roughly half the tempo in this recording. Bernstein interprets the score quite literally, but in my opinion it detracts from the grandeur and colossal feel. Especially in regards to the repeated D-A-D-A-D-A in the timpani. That would really benefit from a slower and more intentional tempo. However LB is certainly more qualified to make these decisions than I am so I will continue to listen and enjoy despite my opinion´╗┐
