Notes & Reviews:
"Taped in stereo in Munich in 1984 with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, this performance has drama, poetry, strength, and tremendous heart. Kubelik clearly knows and loves the score and he finds every moment of beauty in it but always keeps the music moving forward. With the ardent and refined playing of the Bavarian musicians, Kubelik treats Má Vlast with the love and reverence that befits this cornerstone of Czech musical nationalism. But what truly sets this recording apart is the fact that it is also a video, and the viewer can thus see as well as hear the performance. This means one can see the dedication and deep sincerity in Kubelik's countenance as he leads the manifestly inspired Bavarian orchestra through a musical tour of his home country." -All Music GuideNotes & Reviews:
