 good version of his symphonies December 22, 2011 By john clones (shrewsbury,Shrewbury, MO) See All My Reviews "I like this recording. It is a good interpritatin of Dvorak's symphonies. His 9th is his most famous. He wrote 8 others. The only complaint That I have is that the 2nd and 5th Symphonies are not complete on the same disc." Report Abuse
