An excellent bargain set in the best Brilliant Classics tradition: the complete symphonies, symphonic poems, overtures and Slavonic Dances of Antonin Dvorák! The set contains all the symphonic works which made Dvorák one of the best and universally loved romantic composers (and who knew how to write a good tune!): the 9th symphony “From the New World” (one of the most popular symphonies ever written), the charming Czech Suite, haunting symphonic poems (Noon Witch, the Water Goblin) and the exhilarating complete Slavonic Dances. Music pouring from a warm and fiercely beating heart, in which the folklore of Dvo?ák’s home country is never far away. Excellent performances by the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Janá?ekRead more Philharmonic and the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Antal Doráti.
Recorded in 1979 - 2004.
