Notes & Reviews:

František Stupka (1879-1965) is ranked among the greatest Czech conductors of the 20th century, alongside Bedrich Bakala, Rafael Kubelík, Vaclav Talich and Karel Ancerl. After leading a string quartet, he was co-director of the Czech Philharmonic with Talich from 1946-56. His career was limited to the east and his significant contributions to new ensembles like the Moravian Philharmonic remained without any modern studio recordings. Here Praga offers this tribute as a reminder Stupka's landmark rendering of two of Dvorak's masterpieces, Symphonies Nos.8 and 9.
