Dvorak: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2
KHCD-2013-024-2CDDL (STEREO) - Dvořák: Symphony No. 1 in c minor, Op. 3, "The Bells of Zlonice"; Symphony No. 2 in B-flat, Op. 4 - Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/Vaclav Neumann - Neumann recorded two sets of Dvořák's symphonies with the great Czech Philharmonic, an analog version in 1972, and digitally in the late 1980s. The analog recordings of symphonies 7, 8, and 9 have shown up on subsequent domestically-issued LPs and Supraphon CD reissues, but the early symphonies have not enjoyed the same fate. Neumann's earlier approach to these works is a bit swifter, with a softer focus from Supraphon's analog engineer. Klassic Haus brings these wonderful recordings back into circulation at a special price. CD cover, tray, and disc art are included in the download file.
