Dvorak: Overtures, Symphonic Poems & Symphonic Variations (2CD)

Deutsche Grammophon
Current Stock:
Symphony Orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Rafael Kubelik

One of the very greatest collections of Dvorák recordings in the catalog, this set contains the four late tone poems based on folk legends, all of the major overtures (including the In Nature's Realm, Carnival, and Othello trilogy), and the magnificent Symphonic Variations. That's over two and a half hours of the some of the most colorful, appealing music in the history of the universe, all magnificently performed and recorded. If you don't own this set, you haven't lived. --David Hurwitz
