Dvorák: Symphony No. 9 "From the New World"; Carnival Overture; Scherzo Capriccioso; Smetana: The Moldau

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jim Svejda
This all-Dvorak album in Naxos' historical series offers Erich Kleiber's majestic 1929 recording of the composer's "New World" Symphony: one of the few recordings of the period to challenge Vaclav Talich's celebrated Dvorak recordings for HMV. If not quite as idiomatic as the Talich interpretation -- this is a solidly Teutonic vision that draws an obvious and justifiable parallel to the symphonies of Brahms -- the performance is alive with character and energy, providing a wonderful souvenir of this diminutive giant. The lavish bonus is Emanuel Feuermann's celebrated 1928-29 recording of the Cello Concerto; after all these years, it's the most spellbinding realization of ...

If not quite as idiomatic as the Talich interpretation -- this is a solidly Teutonic vision that draws an obvious and justifiable parallel to the symphonies of Brahms -- the performance is alive with character and energy, providing a wonderful souvenir of this diminutive giant. The lavish bonus is Emanuel Feuermann's celebrated 1928-29 recording of the Cello Concerto; after all these years, it's the most spellbinding realization of the solo part. Although the recorded sound remains fairly dim and the Berlin State Opera Orchestra under Michael Taube is barely up to the task, this recording demonstrates more clearly than any other why Feuermann, not Pablo Casals, was the great cellist of the 20th century. The combination of bravado, patrician phrasing, and flawless technique that Feuermann brought to the Concerto has never been duplicated, making us realize anew what the world lost when the cellist died during a routine operation in 1942, a few months short of what would have been his 40th birthday.

    CD preserves original analog hiss.

    This is wonderful music. This CD, however, is entirely a collection of historical recordings, made from 1927 to 1948. It carefully preserves all of the extraneous hissing, dust noise and variation due to the uneven rpm of the original recordings. Nearly all bass is missing, since it wasn't present in the original recordings. Unless you are a graduate student studying pre-Hitler Berlin, don't bother with this CD. (One track is London Philharmonic in 1948, the other 7 are Berlin state Opera or Berlin Philharmonic, pre 1930.) The performances were originally very good. The recordings were probably very carefully preserved. But, it's like listening to a modern recording with static added and bass deleted. It's pretty annoying, if you didn't expect it.
