Rafael Kubelik's (1914-1996) readings of Antonín Dvorák are all reference ones: this is out of question. It does not necessarily mean that Kubelik's performances are all and ever the best ones, even if, in many cases, I think it is true.
Therefore, for Dvorák's lovers I think it is not possible to leave out of consideration or not to own Kubelik's interpretations.

This 3 CDs box-set praiseworthily collects in an unitary anthology works DG had previously issued in separate editions. I think it is the perfect complement to the 9 Symphonies 6 CDs box-set (see: DVORAK :THE 9 SYMPHONIES - BERLIN PHILHARMONIC, KUBELIK or Dvorák: Complete Symphonies) and to the Stabat Mater / Legends 2CDs box-set (see: Dvorák: Stabat Mater/Legends).
Obviously, every one of them can "live" individually, but I think that, together, they form a robust and astonishing high quality corpus concerning Dvorák's main orchestral opuses, on the whole possibly the best ever recorded.

In my opinion, it is very important to examine the whole interpretative thought of a performer concerning a particular composer: this process aids to avoid superficial judgments about a single performance, and, at the same time, to exactly collocate and to assess the single performance within an unitary conceptual framework.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 15 Dec. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This collection of works is totally practical and offers good performances in good sound for its period. However, since they were made, the competition has got notably tougher and it would be a mistake to ignore the more modern and equally vital set of the overtures and poems by Jarvi which arguably now leads the field.

The set by Kertesz has also been remastered and offers a more dramatic view of most of the works supported by the LSO on top form and excellent Decca engineering. Harnoncourt offers a partial alternative. The best set of authentic Slavonic Dances remains the Supraphon issue with Sejna in sound that completely belies its age. The Czech orchestra simply sound Slavonic in the tonal way that Dvorak would have recognised.

The following is the review previously supplied for the set of overtures without the Slavonic Dances and which still holds good as an overall summary. A personal conclusion based on current alternatives is listed at the end of this set of comments.

........................

Previous review as a basic over-view and guide as to options:

I first came across all of these works via Supraphon recordings in the late 50's and early 60's and played by Czech orchestras with complete conviction. I became rapidly hooked. These are works of Dvorak's maturity and of the quality of his last 3 symphonies for example.

A few years later came the survey by Kertesz as fill-ups to his complete symphony set. Later still came these Kubelik recordings which were in turn followed by fine performances conducted by Jarvi, Ashkenazy and Harnoncourt. All of these are worth acquiring for their different insights but for now I will concentrate on just comparing Kubelik and Kertesz.

These are beautiful performances, magnificently and idiomatically played and well recorded. There are some neglected works of Dvorak in this collection that are absolute masterpieces, and they continue to astound on repeated hearings. The atmosphere of the symphonic poems is captured remarkably well. This is great music. Highly recommended.
