Format: Audio CD
From the firts note of the opening to the last of the finale, the audience in the Amsterdam concertgebouw was completely captivated by Harnoncourts vision on Dvorak music. A shattering applause burst loose over the performers afterwards, indicating that a true form of musical communication had been established between audience and performers. As no other, Harnoncourt is an ideal guide in this music. The thorough understanding that he seems to have on how to create and hold tension, building it piece by piece from beginning to end is absolutely unique. Under his direction the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the finest in the world, was pushed to a musical extreme. The recording is superbly handled by Teldec, and I found that in the living room the raw emotions came back full force. A definite must for those that would like to (re)discover Dvorak, and a definite must for those who have scoffed Dvorak as a second-rate composer. Harnoncourt proves the contrary.

While I love much of the music of Dvorak, his 8th symphony has tended to leave me a little cold - until now. Harnoncourt's performance is nothing short of breathtaking. His phrasing is consistently perfect (yes - perfect), but the feeling he imparts to this music is electrifying. While not quite as widely performed as his 9th Symphony, the 8th is till a battle horse of the classical repetoire, yet hearing Harnoncourt's performance was, and continues to be, like hearing the Dvorak Eighth for the first time. If you like Dvorak, do yourself a very big favor and pick up this CD.

Format: Audio CD
Much to my surprise, Nikolaus Harnoncourt is proving to be as adept in conducting the works of great late 19th Century composers such as Dvorak as he is with Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. This [is] one of the freshest, most vivid accounts of Dvorak's 8th Symphony that I've heard. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra provides a rousing, stirring performance. As usual, Teldec's sound engineers ensure that the sound is superbly well-balanced; no orchestral section is emphasized at the expense of another. I loved Sir Colin Davis' version of this symphony with the same orchestra that Phillips recorded a long time ago, but Harnoncourt's version is far superior.
