Notes & Reviews:

The great Emanuel Feuermann was the first cellist to commercially record the Dvorak Concerto in its entirety. The recording was an involved process. The first session took place in Berlin on April 30, 1928 with the Berlin Staatskapelle conducted by Taube for Parlophon. According to Anette Morreau 's book on Feuermann, the initial recording took place in March, 1926 when the second movement was recorded, also for Parlophon. The first two movements were recorded and published in the UK in 1928. The third movement was recorded on September 27, 1929 and released separately in the UK in 1930. Feuermann returned to the studios to record two final sides, namely the third side of the first movement and first side of the second movement. The conductor of this final session is thought to be Frieder Weissmann, but the published records listed only Taube 's name. Needless to say, all of this produced a recording of varied sound characteristics, based on different acoustics, pitch problems, etc., but Opus Kura has done it 's best with the material. The renowned New World performance was done when Szell and the Czech Philharmonic were making a UK tour, and the recording was made in the acoustically superior Abbey Road Studios.
