Notes & Reviews:
Maestro Belohlavek and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra return to Decca with Dvorak's unforgettable Slavonic Dances. There is no more authentic team today to play these works: the leading Czech orchestra with the leading Czech conductor, recorded in Prague. In two sets, the Op.46 Slavonic Dances were such a success on release (in the late 1800's) that Dvorak's publisher immediately commissioned a further set (to become the Op.72) - which inspired an equally enthusiastic reception.
Jiri Belohlavek and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra return to Decca with Dvorak's Slavonic Dances. Decca's acclaimed 2014 "Complete Dvorak Concertos and Symphonies" release was named as one of the Top Recordings of 2014 by the New York Times, and this new release continues the musical journey. There is no more authentic team today to play these works: the leading Czech orchestra with the leading Czech conductor, recording in the fine acoustic of the famous Rudolfinum in Prague.
