The Sunday Times’ Classical CD of the Week
'[A] terrific disc ... The composer's Bohemian origins are to the fore in this rich reading of his Pastoral symphony: joyous, lyrical, atmospheric, like an autumn walk in a Bohemian wood.'
'When Colin Davis and the LSO launched their own record label with recordings of Dvorák's last two symphonies, they won instant acclaim. [Now adding] a resplendent Sixth, [it] blazes with Bohemian warmth and vivacity.'
The Daily Telegraph
'[Davis'] attention to orchestral detail imparts an almost chamber-music feel that is entirely beneficial. His reading of the first movement is marvellously infectious.'
BBC Music Magazine
’Buy with confidence.'
Sir Colin Davis, London Symphony Orchestra
Dvořák's Sixth Symphony secured him international fame following its premiere 1881. The influence of his native Bohemia, its sounds and its culture are abundant and give the work a refreshing flavour reminiscent of his Slavonic Dances. Sir Colin Davis's recordings of Dvořák's Symphonies Nos 8 and 9 were the first titles released on LSO Live, immediately establishing the label's international reputation. Since then the Symphony No 7 has also been released to great acclaim.
