Notes & Reviews:

Dvorak - Glazunov - Gershwin. With a touch of hyperbole, this combination of seemingly disparate music worlds can be conceived as a comparison of the reverberations of Slavonic musicality in various corners of the world. The common denominator of these recordings is the personality of Vaclav Smetacek, to whom the Prague Symphony Orchestra is indebted for its worldwide renown. Smetacek's peerless recording of Dvorak's third symphony contained on this CD is supplemented by superb performances of the pianist Jan Panenka and the jazzman, conductor and composer Karel Krautgartner.

Notes & Reviews:
