Notes & Reviews:

The final title in the Talich Special Edition series is a sort of chronological cross-section of Talich’s recordings. It opens with the symphonic poem Sarka, recorded in 1929 when Talich first caught the recording bug, accepting an offer from His Master’s Voice to record Smetana’s complete My Country with the Czech Philharmonic. The recording presents Talich at the peak of his powers, standing at the head of his polished and devoted Czech Philharmonic and lauded as one of the greatest directors on the European continent.
