Editorial Reviews

Review

Ivan Zenaty appears in the popular Violin Concerto, a piece that loves to indulge the oboes, cellos, bass fiddles, and flute along with the solo. Zenaty plays a lovely-toned Prinz von Oranje Guarnerius of 1743, and a full-blooded instrument it is. The camera often dwells on the burnished fingerboard, which Zenaty masters with blinding ease, only barely making eye contact with Belohlavek for an occasional entry. At the conclusion of each selection, a bouquet of flowers graces the individual soloists, and a full house clamors its affection for a gifted set of musicians performing sweet melodies by a favorite Czech son. -- Audiophile Audition, Gary Lemco, May 2008

Product Description

The works of the quintessentially Czech composer Anton+-¡n Dvor++­k are, above all, enjoyable and perennial favourites of the Romantic repertoire. This six-part series of concerts is performed by the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Prague Philharmonic Choir, with three leading Czech conductors on the podium: Petr Altrichter, Jir+-¡ Belohl++­vek, and Libor Pesek. Guest soloists include soprano Lucia Popp, alto Eva Randov++­, tenor Josef Protschka, bass Peter Mikulas, pianist Igor Ardasev, violinist Ivan Zenaty and cellist Mischa Maisky, who plays one of Dvor++­k's finest works, the Cello Concerto. Directed by Rodney Greenberg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious Violin Concerto and Te Deum October 25, 2010
See my general remarks on the Dvorak Cycle in my review of Volume 1. Volume 2 combines a moving performance of the rarely heard five Biblical Songs op. 99 with Eva Randová (mezzo-soprano), strongly supported by the Prague Symphony Orchestra under Jiri Belohlávek. Ivan Zenaty plays the Violin Concerto with both panache and subtlety, perfectly in tune with the different facets of this radiant work. There are several excellent recordings of this popular concerto, but this ranks high among the best. In the joyful, fairly compact but monumental Te Deum, Belohlávek and his orchestra are joined by soloists Livia Aghová (sop.) and Ivan Kusnjer (bar.) and the very fine Prague Philharmonic Choir. The soloists are more than adequate, chorus and orchestra in great form, and Belohlávek brings about a glorious performance.
