Notes & Reviews:

In the year of the centenary of the birth of Karel Ancerl, one of the most distinguished conductors of the 20th century, this DVD is an invaluable and authentic document of magnificent artistic achievement and a turbulent life. The recording of the opening concert of Prague Spring 1968 captures Ancerl's performance of Smetana's 'My Country' with the Czech Philharmonic which - over the 18 years he was at the helm - he managed to transform into one of the world's finest symphony orchestras.
