About this release

Nearing the end of the International Dvorak-year Brilliant Classics has a surprise in store: an brand-new recording of the complete Symphonic Poems and Overtures of the great Czech master. After his hugely successful 9-th symphony Dvorak didn’t attempt to write another symphony. Instead he let himself be inspired by the rich Czech folklore, which resulted in symphonic poems based on Czech legends and fairytales: programmatic music with more then a hint of Wagner …

Excellent performances by one of the most underestimated orchestras of Czech Republic: the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra from Ostrava, here recorded under the inspiring direction of Theodore Kuchar, award-winning conductor, notably known for his many recordings on the Naxos label.
