Czech Philharmonic, Václav Talich - The legendary conductor Václav Talich (1883-1961) who shaped the Czech Philharmonic over the course of entire decades, recorded Dvořák's Slavonic Dances in 1955 at what was then Czechoslovak Television. It was his last work with the orchestra. - Václav Talich said of his work: "We conductors are a strange combination of self-confidence and humility. We need self-confidence when we face the orchestra, then humility when we face the composer whose work we are studying…" - Inspired by Talich's life, director Martin Suchánek recorded the documentary Václav Talich. Self-confidence and Humility, in which he covers all the significant moments of the conductor's personal and artistic life. Václav Talich - one of themost famous Czech conductors
