Review of the seventh (5 star):

The seventh is not my favourite Dvorak symphony. I like 4-6,8,9 better. However, this version more or less did open my eyes for its beauty. I've Dohnanyi and Sinaisky (BBC recording), and heard Fischers recent recording, but they failed to drag me into the work like Mackerras did.
Edit: I've increased my rating from 4 to 5 stars. I've heard the Macal recording on Exton also now, and after hearing and comparing 5 recordings, this one clearly stands out as a performance.

Review of the eight (4 star):

The recording of the eight I think to prefer after hearing once in the past is Kubeliks DG record, but that's based on memory. This performance was very good, but not leaving me completely satisfied. For me it sounds as if the orchestra's sound is not completely suited to the music. Strange after feeling that convinced of the seventh (but with a long period between listening sessions).
Shortly hereafter I heard Dohnanyi/Cleveland. I preferred that one to Mackerras.

Sound rating (both symphonies): very good live recording, without being outstanding.

I bought a used CD of Dvoraks S8 and S9, a bit below the cost of a new one. It was delivered well on time and is perfect. I was very pleased with this purchase

These performances match Mackerras's ... 16 July 2014
By Kirk List - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
excellent Schubert Symphony #9 with the Philharmonia on Signum. Again he avoids the HIP practices which marred his performances of some Mozart concerti with Alfred Brendel. According to a close friend who worked in the MET chorus in operas
conducted by Mackerras, this was a short term experiment for him, not a new orthodoxy such as that adopted by Claudio Abbado
in his later years. This Dvorak is akin to CM's Janacek opera cycle, for Czecheslovakia and its composers amounted to a second home, including apprenticeship with Vaclav Talich and long experience with Czech music. I do not speak the language, but
these Dvorak performances remind me of those by Karel Ancerl and Karel Sejna with idiomatic Czech accents and phrasing. Fortunately,Mackerras brings other attributes which do not include the rushed tempi with the Prague CO in some of their Mozart
symphonies on Telarc. #7 retains its D minor fury but also dramatizes gentler passages in loving detail without melting.
This is true also of the more lyrical G Major #8. Both are impassioned -perhaps the live venue helped, for one
feels the sense of occasion on these recordings. This is a packed field, but this cd is well worth investigating.

Peers: Kubelik/BRSO/DG, Szell/Cleveland/Sony (both) and #8 only/RCOA/Decca); Dohnanyi/Cleveland/ Decca; Talich/CPO/Supraphon;
Sawallisch/Philadelphia/EMI (both); Munch/BSO/RCA-#8 only; Ancerl/Supraphon-#8; Haitink/RCOA/Philips-Decca and Sejna/CPO/Supraphon-#7 only

Softly beguiling readings -- late Mackerras doing well 28 Feb. 2010
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not quite sure why the Philharmonia has faded from view recently, at least to those of us across the Atlantic. They remain a very refined orchestra, and their new music director, Salonen, may prove to be the spark they need. They have been late to appear with a house label (ditto the Boston Sym. over here), and Signum seems to be filling in the gap. It's too bad that the design of the cover art is so utterly lacking in excitement or even the ability to be noticed. So far, the Philharmonia releases have mostly featured the outgoing music director Christoph von Dohnanyi, but here we have the beloved senior conductor Charles Mackerras in Dvorak, one of his specialty Czech composers.

To be candid, I've never heard anything remotely approaching greatness in the reliable Mackerras, and I resent that his run-of-the-mill Janacek opera recordings for Decca have become the "standard of excellence," certainly not a gold standard. Grumbling aside, he's in good form here, primarily because the orchestra's contribution exhibits such finesse and glowing tone. The fast movements in both symphonies could use more zest, but Mackrras feels personal here, a quality I rarely find from him, so the slow movements are touching. There's sufficient lilt in the Scherzos, with careful emphasis on the off-beats. The naturalness of these readings is appealing, and although there are many great Dvork Sevenths and Eighths with more drama, few are this softly beguiling, in the style of late Bruno Walter.
