This is the first review that I have written, but I noticed that there isn't a review for this exceptionally fine recording of Dvorak's underated 3rd symphony. I have 5 recordings of this symphony, and this is definitely my favorite. This recording has depth and richness and a wonderful feeling for this sweet symphony. Last summer I listened to this recording over and over again while I was painting indoors. I have an extensive collection of classical music, and it's rare that I listen so much to a particular recording. So, if you appreciate Dvorak's symphonies, give this one a try.

Or maybe it's the sound, which on my equipment sounds a bit "tubby" or bass-heavy. I played the Kertesz immediately after, and despite its being 20+ years older, it had an openness and better (to my ears) balance than Jarvi's. The Chandos sound is warm, though, and it's not constricted, so if you like Jarvi's conducting generally, you needn't hesitate. The work itself is very likeable without being quite as memorable as the the last three symphonies. The most memorable movement is the finale, where Dvorak employs a cheeky skipping kind of theme, and puts it through its paces expertly. The slow movement, however, is the one that intrigues you as you listen to it -- there's a "marcia funebre" element to it that is developed in a variety of guises without any loss of momentum or expression, and it's interrupted by a dignified heroic theme in which some commentators hear Wagner, but I'm not so sure. It is striking, though, and it's framed effectively by the march. Jarvi's second movement is 3 minutes faster than Kertesz's -- and the return of the march, and the flexibility and poignancy of its phrasing at the end of the movement is one place where Kertesz seems better to me. The first movement is workmanlike and well-developed, with a bit of Brahmsian richness to the scoring. All in all, a very engaging work. On Jarvi's disc, there is also an effective performance of the spirited "Carnival" Overture and a nice "Symphonic Variations."
