About

*** 3x 45rpm 140g Vinyl *** Pure Analogue Direct-to-Disc Recording ***

Antonín Dvořák's Symphony no.9 "From the New World" is one of those works that span the entire world. Composed by a representative of the "old world", created and premiered in the "new world", it is omnipresent in the music world. And when it is performed by an orchestra with Czech roots and a Czech principal conductor, it becomes a very special event.

In April 2023, the Bamberg Symphony and Jakub Hrůša recorded this symphony using a special process, the direct-to-disc recording, in which a lacquer serves as the recording medium. The signal from three microphones was sent via an analogue mixing console directly to the cutting stylus, which carved the groove into the original at 45 revolutions per minute. The LPs in this box set are direct copies of the originals, of which - in reference to the year of the premiere at Carnegie Hall in New York - 1893 sets were pressed in a limited and numbered edition.

Since this recording comes extremely close to a real concert experience, the box set also includes an "encore" on a third LP: Dvořák's Waltz, op.54 no.1, which is often played by the orchestra in conjunction with the Ninth Symphony.

* This recording is released exclusively on vinyl *

Recorded direct-to-disc at Konzerthalle Bamberg, Joseph-Keilberth-Saal, 11/12 April 2023
