I've wanted to investigate Dvorak's symphonies for years, so for Christmas invested in two classic sets - the Kubelik and the Kertesz. I haven't listened to the latter yet but would echo the praise of the previous reviewer for Kubelik's set.

These are marvellous works given spirited recordings by an orchestra directed by a conductor whose affinity with the composer is obvious. The analogue sound stands up well (preferable to some digital recordings I've heard)and the set comes at a very reasonable price. Don't be put off by the thought of nine symphonies over six discs - just think of hours of great music that you can lose yourself in. An ideal starting point for anyone wanting to investigate the gorgeous music of Dvorak. There are some shorter orchestral works included - the "Scherzo capriccioso", "Carnival Overture" and the "Wood Dove" tone poem - it's all good and comes highly recommended.

Format: Audio CD
The LSO's cycle with Kertesz got more notices but these days you can find critics revisiting and starting to pare down the earlier encomia. If the London sessions are going down, these Berlin ones deserve to go up, especially when the DG Originals pairing of Nos 8&9 has long been recognised as a world beater.

Kubelik brings a unique intensity and conviction to middle period and late Dvorak, and it's a mark of how highly he was regarded back in the analogue era that DG put him together with the Berlin Phil, Karajan's super orchestra, rather than with Kubelik's own BRSO. The playing is generally electrifying, not just in the very popular final symphonies: jump to the slow movements of the Third and Fourth symphonies, Wagner's spirit all apparent, and savour the breadth of Kubelik's conception and the commitment of the orchestra's playing.

Slightly vexing that both Nos 4 & 5 are split over two disc, but at least the box design is space efficient and the booklet informative. Quality analogue stereo, state of the art then, more than acceptable now.

LOVE all of this but have a few issues with the slowness of some of the 4th Symphony! Apart from that one criticism, this is a recommended set, very musical and lively!

As yet I have only played Symph. No 1 and that is excellent, I will be playing others in the coming months. My only concern was that some symphonies are spread over two discs but of course this is to cut down on disc costs. As the recordings are by DGG I am sure the remainder will as good.
