Notes & Reviews:

Witold Rowicki leads the London Symphony Orchestra in this 6-CD set of the nine complete Symphonies and four additional overtures including Carnival, My Country, Othello and Husitska.

"Witold Rowicki's remains arguably the finest set of them all. It has no weak performances... Rowicki's interpretations are swift, energetic, and rhythmically snappy - all of a piece from one work to the next. Several performances, including Symphonies 3-5, never have been bettered, and these versions of the late works are uniformly excellent. So are the four overtures. It may be that Decca has released this set at budget price in order to keep the more famous Kertesz set as the "premium" option. So much the better for you. This is a mandatory acquisition for anyone who loves Dvorak." - Classics Today
