About

A tribute to František Stupka (1879-1965) ranked among the greatest Czech conductors of the 20th century, alongside Břetislav Bakala, Rafael Kubelík, Václav Talich and Karel Ančerl. After leading a string quartet, he was co-director of the Czech Philharmonic (1946-56) with Talich. His career was limited to the East and his significant contribution to new ensembles like the Moravian Philharmonic remained without any modern studio recordings. Here Praga offer as a reminder Stupka’s landmark rendering of two of Dvořák’s masterpieces.
