Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics relaunches the popular EMI Master Series: The definitive series of great classical music from a trove of the most notable and revered classical recordings ever made. Available on CD and for digital download, this newly repackaged installment of 10 master celebrates EMI Classics' greatest artists, including Maria Callas, Nigel Kennedy and Itzhak Perlman. All performances in this series were recorded, mastered, or a re-mastered at the internationally renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gramophone
The performance itself is of the highest quality. The orchestral playing is sensitive and responsive throughout with a beautifully blended and homogeneous tonal balance. The playing is cultured but Simon Rattle also brings an awareness of the pantheistic fervor that inspires Janacek's wonderful score.
