Notes and Editorial Reviews
A new Dvorak symphony and concerto cycle from the multi-Gramophone-Award-winning conductor and the great Prague-based orchestra.

Marking a triumphant return to the orchestra where he trained, the world leading and multi-Gramophone Award-winning maestro Jiri Belohlavek records Decca’s first Dvorak cycle since the 1960s. Dvorak himself conducted the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra’s first concert in 1896, and the shared Bohemian heritage of composer, conductor and orchestra lends a very special authenticity to these recordings.

Dvorak’s three concertos (violin, cello and piano) feature alongside his nine great Symphonies, with Decca’s leading cellist Alisa Weilerstein, Frank Peter Zimmermann (violin) and Garrick Ohlsson (piano).
