Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
What Laurence Equilbey and her group have recorded for the first time is the original version of the score, with soloists, chorus and piano accompaniment, reconstructed from Dvorßk's manuscript. I'm not sure, though, that hearing this first attempt does the work many favours. For all the suaveness of Equilbey's performance, it never really establishes its own identity or makes a convincing case for the piano accompaniment, which too often seems like a surrogate for the full orchestral textures. Some of Dvorßk's piano writing even sounds as though it's a reduction, rather than originally conceived for the instrument. A historical curiosity, certainly - but little more.
