Notes & Reviews:

"Talich brings constant surprises to works that most classical listeners know, and Czechs of the 1950s knew by heart. Consider the reading of the last movement of this Symphony No. 8, which may well be definitive for those who don't have to have absolute sonic perfection. Many conductors lay too much weight on the foot-tapping main theme and tend to lose momentum as the movement proceeds. Talich grasps the architecture of this movement, whose crowd-pleasing quality masks a subtle kind of development, as few other conductors have: it opens circumspectly, shocks the listener with little jolts along the way, and reaches full steam only toward the end. The "New World" symphony is full of wonderful details, with a profoundly serene slow movement that gets at Dvorak's mystical reverence for nature." -All Music
