 Excellent Recording April 30, 2016 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony, as played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and directed by Georg Solti is excellently presented here. I have in my music library this same symphony as played by the London Symphony Orchestra and directed by Witold Rowicki, and, comparing the two versions, the CSO version is my favorite. I especially enjoy how the CSO renders the “Going Home” theme that appears in the second movement of the symphony. It is played with a quiet reverence and a heart-felt pathos that only the CSO under the direction of Solti could provide. I rate the sound quality of the presentation here as first rate, with the full range of sounds presented. All said, I give this rendition of Dvorak’s Symphony #9 high marks as one of the best presentations of this symphony that I have heard to date." Report Abuse
