5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Heritage Release of Szell's Work 22 Mar 2000
By Paul Bunkerr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While Szell was conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra, his name was closely associated with the music of Dvorak. Szell's recordings of the Slavonic Dances and the three "great" symphonies have been part of everyone's classical record library since they were released. These performances are beautifully captured in these re-mastered discs and the packaging by Sony is wonderful as usual. The orchestration of Smetena's "From My Life" is an interesting and effective period piece that shows Szell's total mastery of writing for orchestra. A great recording you should have in your collection! Too bad Sony has not released Szell's old Columbia recording of Dvorak's Piano Concerto!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable 18 July 2001
By J. Buxton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sony has done well to reissue these recordings of Dvorak's best known and loved symphonies, given wonderful treatment by Szell and his well-drilled Cleveland Orchestra. These are recordings to treasure and hear again and again. Szell proves once again to be one of the finest Dvorak interpreters of the twentieth century. The lilting rhythym of the strings at the start of the second movement "Poco Adagio" of the Seventh symphony are really something to hear. The gorgeous, opulent string tone that dominates the third movement of the Eighth symphony can almost sweep you away in its beauty, and the furious rush to the end of the final movement is as amazing for the technical demands it must have placed on the players as it is for power to thrill. Here I am reminded that EMI has reissued Szell's other fine recording of the Eighth from 1970-this recording from 1958 is by no means of inferior sound quality and I think it is a better performance. The Ninth here is again from 1958 and is also very successful if not as well recorded in my opinion. The bonus tracks here, the Carnival Overture, the Bartered Bride Overture and Szell's own orchestral version of Smetana's "From My Life" Quartet are more than just fillers. They are all highly enjoyable in their own right, as I don't think I've heard Carnival and the Bartered Bride played with so much energy and life. Although Sony has done wonders for the sound, as one might expect it is not immaculate. The final few bars of the Allegro con brio from the Eighth seem to become a little distant and somewhat faint and there are some parts of the Ninth where some of the brass and timpani seem to be far away. These are small reservations in the end, although if you are looking for a modern recording in fine digital sound and solid performances I recommend the Dohnanyi with the Cleveland Orchestra on Decca. However, I will treasure these Szell recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Lord, just buy it. 28 May 2007
By Kevin Orth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not only is this the most passionately and perfectly played Dvorak and Smetana I've ever heard, it is sonically head and shoulders above the Columbia/Sony reissues we had to suffer through for so many years.

The Cleveland Orchestra is quite simply on fire here, Szell is inspired, one of the great musicians of the century, and the sound reflects the bright, spacious feeling of Severance Hall.

Let's just hope that Sony continues to clean up the scores of remaining Szell/Cleveland recordings they have in their vault for digital release. Music making of this caliber is of historical importance.

Postscript--After several more listenings I notice that in the wildly intense mono recording of Smetana's Bartered Bride overture there are moments where Szell can be heard driving the string section attack by singing the parts in a mad voice reminescent of Glenn Gould or Bernstein in their wackiest moments of musical transport. And his orchestration and performance of "From My Life".... Szell an Ice Cube? Stereotypes and reportage from third rate journalists die hard. This is music making of such barely contained passion and frenzy that even after thirty years of listening to it I still find new things to marvel at...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it. 27 Aug 2000
By bruce horner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Though Sony doesn't give you a break on price, these two discs are well worth the money. Superb renditions of Dvorak's 7th, 8th, and 9th symphonies and some extras (the Carnival Overture, the Smetana) plus great packaging. Old fans of this music tell me that the engineers have worked sonic wonders here; all I know is that it sounds good. Hard to believe that this is the first time this 7th has seen the light of day on CD, but there you have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The DEFINITIVE Dvorak recordings 24 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Tremendous re-mastered sound, an unequalled caliber of orchestral talent and one of the greatest conductors of the century all combine to make this THE set of Dvorak 7-8-9 to have. There's none better.
