Finally reissued as a boxed set, Otmar Suitner's Dvorák symphonies unquestionably ranks with the very best, right up there with Kertesz, Kubelik, and Rowicki. He secures absolutely gorgeous playing from the Staatskapelle Berlin, with glowing string textures and a truly Czech character from the woodwinds, and all of the performances are beautifully recorded. Make no mistake, this set represents a major achievement by a seriously underrated conductor–not a showman, perhaps, but a fine musician with good ideas and the means to realize them. Don't miss it this time around.
