8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 3, 2006
Format: Audio CD
This 2CD compilation set is being offered at a budget price and includes many of Dvorák's most famous works, or at least excerpts from them. All of them derive from the back-catalog of the Naxos label and although some of the performances are by artists or groups not necessarily world-famous, there is not a weak performance to be found here.

I particularly liked, on CD1, the Vlach Quartet's playing of the third movement of Dvorák's 'American' String Quartet, the lilting third movement of his Symphony No. 8 played by Stephen Gunzenhauser and the Slovak Philharmonic, and the third movement of the 'Dumky' Piano Trio. I melted at Jana Valaskova's performance of 'O Silver Moon' from Dvorak's opera, 'Rusalka.'

On CD2, highlights include Maria Kliegel playing the second movement from the Cello Concerto, the first movement of the Wind Serenade (played by members of the Oslo Philharmonic), the finale of the Piano Quintet with a vastly underrated pianist, Ivan Klánský, and the Vlach Quartet. The Largo from the 'New World' Symphony (the 'Going Home' movement) is given a radiant reading.

Given the budget pricing and the never less than excellent performances, this is a true winner, particularly for those who want to familiarized themselves with the broad range of Dvorák's music.

Traveled to Prague this past summer. Heard a lot about Dvorak there. Bought this when I got home and I enjoy listening to it while reading.

2 disc package.
The 1st disk has some defect. When I put it in a CD player, the player stops turning, and no music is played. Thus I have had no opportunities to listen to. The second disc was tightly inserted into the case. The center hole must have been too small. I was unable to remove the disc out of the center retainer. When I pulled the disc hard to remove it, the disc cracked, and thus I had to toss it into trash can. Some piece of junk for 10 dollars. I would not recommend this company's CDs.
