Notes and Editorial Reviews

The repertoire by which Dorati is most well known, this recording of the “Slavonic Dances” is regarded as second to none. Inspired by the “Hungarian Dances” of Brahms, the then-little-known composer Dvorak used the characteristics of Slavic folk music to write eight lively and nationalistic works that became among his best known and most popular, launching his career. The second suite would follow the success of the first eight years later.

“Doráti shapes his Slavonic Dances with real affection, and his orchestra is extremely accomplished: a delightful disc… The Bamberg Orchestra was formed from Czech musicians who crossed the frontier after the war, so it should feel at home in this music, having recorded these with
Read more Keilberth, Lehmann and Talich.” -- Gramophone
