ArtistsCzech Philharmonic Orchestra
Performed and recorded by musicians who have an innate understanding and deep-rooted love for this music of their homeland, this is a first-rate recording, bringing great passion and lyricism to Dvořák’s spellbinding Slavonic Dances. There is no more authentic team today to play these works: the leading Czech orchestra with the leading Czech conductor, recording in the fine acoustic of the famous Rudolfinum in Prague.
The Op.46 Slavonic Dances were such a success on their release (in the late 1800s) that Dvořák’s publisher immediately commissioned a further set (to become the Op.72) – which inspired an equally enthusiastic reception. Lively and colourful, both sets feature a variety of traditional forms of dance, Dvorak expertly working with the leaping gallop, polka, odzemek and skočná, contrasted alongside luscious mazurkas and sousedsky.
Decca’s acclaimed 2014 complete Dvořák Concertos and Symphonies release was named as one of the Top Recordings of 2014 by the New York Times: “… the set as a whole stands as eloquent testimony to this eminent orchestra’s triumphant return to international prominence…” - James R Oestreich, New York Times
“[Bělohlávek’s] return to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra as music director has brought him back to his emotional and musical heartland. In works by Dvořák and Smetana, unbounded lyricism and Czech melancholy emerged with the authenticity that only this orchestra can bring.” - The Guardian
