Dvorak: Symphonies No 6 & 9 / Alsop, Baltimore Symphony
This is an audio-only (i.e., with no video content) Blu-ray disc playable only on Blu-ray players.
Dvo?ák’s Symphony No. 6 pays tribute both to his mentor Brahms and to the rich folk music of his Bohemian homeland. The most popular of all Dvo?ák’s works, Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’, makes an immediate appeal by virtue of a seemingly inexhaustible flow of melody and sparkling orchestration. ‘New orchestra, New World, and a terrific reading of a firm favourite’ (Gramophone on Dvo?ák’s Symphony No. 9)
Sound format: PCM Stereo / DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1
"We know, from her recordings of the Brahms Symphonies, for Naxos, that Alsop is totally at home in this romantic repertoire and this performance simply confirms her position as an interpreter of music of this period. This performance is shattering in its power and urgency and Alsop brings a new view to this, supposedly, well known work. All in all this is an essential addition to any collection and it sits very well beside both the Berlin Philharmonic with Kubelik and the LSO with Kertesz. A real must have!"
