Smetana: Má vlast / Vaclav Talich, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra

Album Summary

>Smetana, Bedrich : Má vlast
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Talich had been music director of the Czech Philharmonic since the year after his country declared independence in 1918, and his first take on Ma Vlast is fresh, direct and courageous... Talich's conducting is straightforward, with tempos taken without rubato and tempo shifts taken with minimal display, but his interpretation is deeply committed to the music. With strong strings, warm brass, pungent woodwinds and an ensemble so sweet it almost sings, the Czech musicians play as if the fate of their nation depended on them." -All Music Guide
