With his Seventh Symphony, Dvorák set out to write a piece that would ’stir the world’. Although it was written to a commission from London, the composer’s Czech nationalist leanings shine out from the work, which is full of drama and rich, beautiful melody.
"This beautiful performance deserves to win many new friends for Dvorák’s most "Brahmsian" symphony. Davis’s love of this music shines out of every bar."
Classical CD of the Week
"Colin Davis and the LSO give a tremendous account ... gorgeously played ... brilliantly executed."
"The LSO Live label was launched with the release of Dvorák’s Eighth and Ninth symphonies, both of which immediately became benchmark recordings for those works. This new CD is surely destined for similar status."
