One of the most recorded conductors of his generation, José Serebrier here completes his much lauded survey of Dvořák's symphonies, adding Nos. 1, 4 and 5 to a series of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra performances that have been praised for their considerable expressivity, remarkable handling of detail and supreme orchestral balance. The works are accompanied by a variety of other concert pieces, among which are a selection of Dvořák's lively, nationalist-driven Slavonic Dances as well as the wonderfully lyrical Legends, endearing miniature tone poems which reveal the Czech composer's mastery of the shortest forms.
"José Serebrier plays the D minor Symphony with a drive, a clarity and a basic integrity of tempo that suggests what Toscanini might have done with the piece, had he played it...Gripping and dramatic." (MusicWeb International)
