Notes and Editorial Reviews

Before his music career, Antonin Dvorak was supposed to go through training as a butcher in Zlonice, a suburb of Prague. He honored the city by adding the subtitle to his first symphony: The bells of Zlonice. He was inspired by Beethoven's symphony style, with his strongly marked leitmotifs and the clearly structured key schemes. In the series of complete recordings of Dvorak symphonies, the Staatsphilharmonie Nurnberg under Marcus Bosch present here their third album. The Staatsphilharmonie Nurnberg is the largest Bavarian opera orchestra after the Bavarian State Orchestra. 91 musicians make up the ensemble, and it is the house orchestra of the Staatsstheater Nuremberg.
