 ‘The most gripping Dvorák to come along in many years’ is how website Classics Today described the recently released disc with the composer’s Seventh Symphony, performed by Claus Peter Flor and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. This was quickly followed by the same team’s recording of Symphony No.8, and now the turn has come to Antonín Dvorák’s final work in the genre: Symphony No.9 – the ‘New World Symphony’. It was composed entirely on American soil, and the composer himself acknowledged that it ‘would not have been written this way if I had never seen America’. Nevertheless, and contrary to what is often claimed, he also maintained that he had not used any existing material, but ‘simply written original themes embodying the peculiarities of the Indian music’, developing them ‘with all the resources of modern rhythms, harmony, counterpoint and orchestral colour.’ Those themes, and Dvorák’s use of them, have exercised an irresistible attraction on audiences, ever since the first triumphant performance in 1893 at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The following year, Dvorák himself conducted the first Czech performance of the symphony. Perhaps to demonstrate to his compatriots in the audience that his heart nevertheless remained in his homeland, the composer included the overture Muj domov (My Home), composed some ten years previously. Part of the incidental music for a play, the overture is based on two popular songs, one of which, Kde domov muj (Where Is My Home), would later become the Czechoslovakian national anthem. On the present recording these two works frame another of Dvorák’s ‘nationalistic’ works, the light-hearted Czech Suite, consisting of five movements, all based on the dance rhythms of Bohemia, Moravia and Central Europe.


 "... this is another highly recommendable disc from a partnership which is clearly yielding  excellent results. Certainly there is no trace of routine in the playing of the Maylaysian Philharmonic Orchestra ..."

Richard Whitehouse - International Record Review - February 2013

"...The SACD sound throughout is superb, gloriously ripe, most judiciously balanced, and with timpani and low brass captured in particularly realistic fashion by the BIS  microphones. I derived enormous pleasure from this release and feel sure you  will too. Dare we now hope for the remaining six Dvorák symphonies from these artists?"
Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone magazine - February 2013

 "A rousing New World symphony ... enjoyable accounts of the Czech Suite and the overture My Home."  ***

Andrew Burton - BBC Music magazine - February 2013
