I've had Dvorak's 9th Symphony on CD since 1991 (with the Cleveland Orchestra directed by George Szell), but it never quite convinced me! I had been looking for a good version to replace it, and now I've finally found the ideal one: Istvan Kertesz's reading of Dvorak's 9th is quite delightful!

It is quite a bargain too, for it includes great versions of Dvorak's 5th, 7th and 8th Symphonies! I already have the 7th and 8th with Previn and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and what a boring version that is! Listening to Kertesz's reading of the 7th and 8th has shown me just how beautiful these Symphonies really are! This has been quite a discovery!

Finally, I'm new to Dvorak's 5th Symphony, and the only thing that I can say is that I'm enjoying it a lot! This is such a beautiful Symphony!

I'm really happy that I bought this great bargain! If you're looking for some fine Dvorak, look no further, this is a great album!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Santa Fe Listener HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 13, 2006
Format: Audio CD
These classic mid-Sixties readings of Dvorak symphonies from Kertesz are unsurpassed, and to have them gathered on a bargain two-fer is exceptionally generous. For me, the highlights are Sym. #5 and #7, the former receiving a wonderfully buoyant, vivacious performance, the latter (much more often recorded) done with great energy and thrust. On the used market one can buy the commplete Dvorak cycle under Kertesz quite reasonably, and that would be first choice, since his readings of the rarely played Sym. #1-4 are highly acclaimed. But to get the three last symphonies plus the Fifth makes a good start. The LSO plyas with total commitment, and Decca's analog sound remains vivid and detailed.

I have always enjoyed Kertesz' reading of the "New World" Symphony; in fact this is the third Decca/London version I've owned. (First, by itself with two shorter works, then combined with the 8th, now this set.)

What you get here for what you usually pay for one CD (and packaged in a normal-size jewel case) is over 2-1/2 hours of great musicianship. Are there better Dvorak symphony packages available? Perhaps, but not at this price! About the only flaw is the complete lack of liner notes, but for all this great music, I can forgive that. If you love Dvorak's symphonies, you need this set!
