Notes & Reviews:

Collector's Edition. 6 CD Box set.

"For those not wanting to go to the expense of the digtal Chandos/Jarvi set, Istvan Kertesz's bargain box is a strong recommendation among the remaining collections of Dvorak symphonies. The CD transfers are of Decca's best quality, full-bodied and vivid, with a fine ambient effect. It was Kertesz who first revealed the full potential of the early symphonies, and his readings gave us fresh insights into these often inspired works. To fit the symphonies and orchestral works on to six CDs, some mid-work breaks have proved unavoidable; but the set remains a magnificent memorial to a conductor who died sadly young." -Penguin Guide Rosette
