Supraphon to honour Jiří Bělohlávek's legacy
Supraphon released an exquisite set of Jiří Bělohlávek’s pivotal and unknown recordings alike. Made up of 8 CDs, the compilation, titled Jiří Bělohlávek – Recollection, pays tribute to the most noted Czech conductor of the past half a century. “The selection of Jiří Bělohlávek’s recordings was made less than a year after his passing away. It above all serves to recollect the extraordinary musician and human,” said Matouš Vlčinský, Supraphon’s producer. The 8CD set contains recordings of a number of pieces (by Mozart, Ravel, Mahler, Bartók) that serve to document the extraordinarily wide range of the conductor’s repertoire.
