Early Dvorak Symphonies,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dvorák: Symphonies Nos 1 - 3 (Audio CD)Only a fraction short of five stars.....If you have a CD collection that covers only the last three Dvorak symphonies you are missing some wonderful music making.
This set includes the best ever performance of the (once lost and never revised) Bells of Zlonice symphony (five stars for this performance) and very good readings of nos. 2 and 3.
Production values by Decca in the mid sixties were exemplary and remain impressive.
This set (and that of symphonies 4, 5 and 6) deserves to be permanently available so that collectors can augment their purchases of the later symphonies as they fall further under the spell of this superb Bohemian symphonic lyricist!

Many thanks, John.
It was rather a brief review. I didn't do it justice by discussing each symphony, but I hope my enthusiasm for the pieces and the performances was apparent!
