Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir
Dvořák’s Saint Ludmila is less well-known than his other choral masterpieces the Stabat Mater and Requiem, but belongs firmly in their ranks in terms of its substance and quality. Naxos has had notable success with the release of the Requiem (857287475) produced in Warsaw and conducted by Antoni Wit, which was given a ‘10/10’ score by ClassicsToday.com.
Leoš Svárovský has conducted numerous successful recordings, including Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass considered ‘as good as it gets’ by ClassicsToday.com. His Naxos recording of Smetana’s Swedish Symphonic Poems (8573597) with the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra was released in January 2019. Svárovský recently conducted Saint Ludmila at the Rheingau Festival in Germany with the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, and in May 2019 he will conduct the work at a subscription concert of the Czech Philharmonic Choir in Brno.
There is a particularly strong quintet of soloists for this recording, including internationally renowned operatic soprano Adriana Kohútková, and Tomáš Černý, a Dvořák specialist and one of the most outstanding Czech tenors of his generation.
