Dvorák: In Natures Realm; Carnival Overture; Othello Overture: Nocturne for Strings - Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Henry Swoboda
GSC025DL (MONO) - Dvorák: In Natures Realm; Carnival Overture; Othello Overture: Nocturne for Strings - Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Henry Swoboda - Dvorák's "Nature, Love and Life" trilogy of overtures, the first recording of them together in sequence on one disc, are given thoughtful performances, in spite of the occasional passage that leaves the impression that the VSOO were sight-reading (which was probably the case!) Sonic are much the same as the Goldmark Rustic Wedding Symphony (see above), and actually sound more as though Westminster had recorded the sessions, rather than usual congested Concert Hall sound one expects. Not note-perfect, but enjoyable nevertheless. Thanks to John Whitmore for the transcription.
