This performance has, i think, great rhythm and drive. And, as i have come to expect from HDTT, smooth and beautiful sound. A real winner.
Superb performance of this wonderful symphony. Similarly the engineering is first rate and the dynamic range is incredible. There is a little tape hiss evident, but don’t let that put you off one of the best recordings of Dvorak’s 9 I’ve heard.
This rivals Kertesz's performance of the New World with the LSO and the HDTT transfer does it full justice.
Although less known than the later remake with the LSO, this 1961 recording with the VPO is highly satisfying. The performance by Kertesz is agreably fresh and dramatic. There is plenty of excitement and the Vienna Philharmonic plays the largo most beautifully. The well remastered sound has never been so tellingly brilliant and Impactful. As usual, with Decca, the Sofiensaa recording venue adds a rich and pleasant luster .
Excellent, exactly as expected.
