This set contains Neumann's first complete recording of Dvorak's symphonies which I have long preferred to his second, digital, set. There is a freshness here that is somewhat lacking in the later set. Some of the performances are indispensable, particularly the 7th symphony and the shorter works - overtures, symphonic poems and variations. The sound sometimes shows its age, especially in the 1st symphony, but that shouldn't put anyone off - 4 stars instead of 5. The orchestral playing is excellent throughout. Overall, this is a real bargain.

From the opening chords of the performance of the First Symphony, `The Bells of Zlonice' it is clear that this is one of the great collections of Dvorak's symphonic works, interpretively on a par with contemporary cycles by Kertész, who includes all the repeats, and the under-rated Rowicki [both with the London Symphony Orchestra], and Kubelik [Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra] but with the distinct advantage of Czech players.

The Symphonic Variations were recorded in 1968, the Symphonies between 1971-3, the Symphonic Poems [The Water Goblin, The Noon Witch, The Golden Spinning Wheel, The Wild Dove] in 1977 and the Overtures [In Nature's Realm, Carnival, Othello] in 1979-80. With the exception of the First Symphony, which is all too rarely heard, the sound on these Supraphon tapes, digitally remastered in 2012, is excellent.

The orchestra is at the top of its form under a conductor, Václac Neumann, who like Karel ejna, 1896-1982, remains underrated in comparison with Ančerl, 1908-73, and Kubelik, 1914-1996, all in the shadow of Talich, 1883-1961. In the mid-1980s, Neumann recorded the symphonies in digital sound and, although less mannered, this earlier cycle was little seen and heard thereafter. Neumann, 1929-95, was chief conductor of the Prague Symphony Orchestra, 1956-63, before being invited to become general music director of the Leipzig Opera and principal conductor of the Gewandhaus Orchestra in 1964. He resigned four years later in protest at the involvement of East German troops in crushing the Prague Spring. He was chief conductor of the Czech Philharmonic, 1968-90, but refused to perform on Czech radio and television in 1989 in protest at government actions against actors demanding political change.

When it comes to Czech music the Czech Philharmonic are peerless and masters in their own right. Under the baton of Vaclav Neumann these recordings are truly wonderful. Fabulous orchestral arrangements throughout, unrushed with a steady tempo which is perfect for Dvorak's glorious run of symphonies. All the recordings are carefully made with each symphony on an individual cd.. so no symphony movement annoyingly carried over here. If you love Dvorak, you will adore this recording. Another memorable and essential release from Supraphon. Make sure you add it to your library.
