About

Gianandrea Noseda chose Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no.8 for his first Philharmonia concert as General Music Director of the Opernhaus Zürich. This performance is now being released as a live recording, together with Dvořák’s Symphony no.7, which was recorded at a later date. Slavic repertoire is very close to Noseda’s heart, and in both concerts, he succeeded in conveying this passion to the musicians of the Philharmonia Zürich. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung praised the performance, calling Noseda a “live wire,” whose musical direction “demanded the last reserves from his musicians,” transforming Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony into “a highly dramatic work.” The “sombre” Seventh and the “buoyant” Eighth form a study in contrasts in Dvořák’s oeuvre. Along with the Ninth (“From the New World”), they are his most popular symphonies.
