Notes & Reviews:
Drawing playing of infectious eagerness and disarming poise from his distinguished band, Myung-Whun Chung directs an exhilaratingly purposeful and memorably fresh account of the Sixth. [... ] DG's sound is immensely ripe and full-bodied, this great orchestra's burnished glow and mahogany-like timbre exceptionally well captured. [... ] Music-making of abundant temperament and tingling spontaneity from Chung and a radiant and intense VPO.
Myung-Whun Chung takes an affectionately fleet-of-foot view of the Third Symphony ... Chung's reading is notable for its newly minted freshness and intelligent sense of proportion ... these wonderfully accomplished artists bring genuine fire and exhilarating spring to Dvorák's vernal inspiration. [... ] the Seventh is an interpretation of red-blooded fervor and rugged contrasts, whose dramatic impact is greatly heighted by the burnished glow of the VPO's contribution, to say nothing of DG's enormously ripe, close-knit sound. [... ] Dvorák releases don't come much more stimulating than this.
