Dvořák’s symphonic poems as performed by Sir Charles Mackerras
January 2010 saw the release of a recording of Antonín Dvořák’s symphonic poems, made by the Czech Philharmonic, conducted by Sir Charles Mackerras, a true connoisseur and champion of Czech music. In the same year, the album received the Gramophone Award. Regrettably, Sir Charles died in July 2010 and could not take it over. The CD is thus the legendary conductor’s final account of Dvořák’s music, as well as a towering achievement, rounding off his long-term collaboration with the Czech Philharmonic and the Supraphon label.
