Notes & Reviews:

Libor Pešek, born in Prague,recorded this rich collection of works by Dvorák with two orchestras that are closely linked with his name: the Czech Philharmonic, a natural choice for this repertoire, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. Pešek, who spent 11 years as Music Director in Liverpool, voiced his admiration for the British players' "immense interest in Czech music", their "dedication to the score" and their capacity for playing "in the Czech manner".
