By Mr. S. J. Bonsor VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with the first release in the BSO's Dvorak cycle: an eccentric account of the `New World' symphony, with strange tempo choices and erratic emphasis made me think that perhaps Serebrier was not the man for the job. However, by contrast, this latest instalment was very much to my liking, and I'd go as far as to say this is possibly the best release by this orchestra in a long while (NB: That's not to say that they haven't released some superb recordings, just that this one in particular is of the very highest calibre).

Where to start? The appeal of the music has always been its strong melodic content, and native bands such as the Czech Philharmonic have generally found a rich warm sound which seems to spring naturally from the middle European soul. However British orchestras have a fine track record in Czech music, and a long list of conductors to match, giving idiomatic performances which at their best concede no prizes to Czech or Slovak ensembles.

This is the case here. Serebrier may not even hail from the same continent, but he very much has the measure of this repertoire and he elicits characterful playing from the BSO. Every department has its moment in the sun, and there are no weak links in the orchestral palette. The string sound is burnished, woodwind and brass distinguished and there is something joyful in the playing throughout. This is an orchestra on top form, basking in the sunshine and relishing every moment.

This is a glorious CD which I can't recommend highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Dvorak from Bournemouth 2 May 2012
By Dean Frey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dvorak had strong links to Britain. The 7th Symphony was commissioned and premiered by London's Philharmonic Society, and it finds another British champion in the Bournemouth Symphony, under the direction of the Uruguayan conductor Jose Serebrier.

The first disc in Serebrier's Dvorak series from Warner Classics was well-reviewed, with "fresh" being the most common word used to describe the oft-recorded Symphony "From the New World". This disc also has a freshness; it sounds bright and warm and new. Serebrier brings out the Brahmsian weight of this great symphony without missing the occasional touch of Bohemian grace and bucolic charm that's so typical of Dvorak. The fillers, a Slavonic Dance, the Scherzo Capriccioso and the tone poem In Nature's Realm, aren't as weighty, but show off the skills of the orchestra and the light touch of the conductor. This is a welcome addition to what is shaping up as a first-rate series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight reading of Dvorak's greatest symphonic drama 13 May 2013
By Jurgen Lawrenz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What does the word "fresh" mean that figures so often in reviews of the 50th or 100th recording of traditional masterpieces? I think it's just an excuse for reviewers to evade the real issue - that the recording in question is not so good as to be indispensable to the catalogue.
Apart from this, every recording was fresh when it first appeared. It's just that some happen to be evergreens; and I can't see anyone expecting such a long life for this present album.
Fresh might in this instance also denote a certain lightweight approach. It seems to be valid; and I can't say I didn't enjoy the first audition. But this symphony has universally been acclaimed as Dvorak's most "serious" essay in the genre, a great dramatic symphony with considerable amount of incident and fairly substantial weight across all four movements. On second and third audition of Serebrier's handling, question marks begin to pop up. The Bournemouth brass, for example, don't sound very round and golden to me. In some of the turbulent episodes, the ensemble sounds a bit shaky and comparison with e.g. Kubelik (Berlin Phil), Belohlavek (Czech Phil) or Sawallisch (Philadelphia) confirms this impression.
The sound of the orchestra is excellently captured; no complaints on this score. But frankly, this recording is for inveterate collectors (like myself), who wish to have every better performance in their collection - or for friends of the orchestra or fans of Serebrier. If your interest in acquiring one or two of the best, then you would be better advised to take your pick from the ones I've mentioned just above.
