The Unknown Dvorak
This is a fabulous compilation, and all kudos to Orion for making it available to the listening public. This repertoire, while unfamiliar to many lovers of Dvorak's more heralded works, is eminently worthy and bears the hallmarks of Dvorak's writing at its best. Lovers of the master's well known Cello Concerto will be deeply impressed/moved by Dvorak's other composition in this genre, particularly in such a sympathetic rendition as Janis Laurs'.
All of the selections are done to perfection by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of the remarkable conductor, Patrick Thomas, a legend in his native country, and highly renowned around the world. Mr. Thomas served as Music Director of the Queensland Symphony for a number of years, and that collaboration bore fruit in many unforgettable performances, a number of them preserved on disc. Led by Patrick Thomas, the Brisbane players routinely delivered world class results, and in the present instance, they outdid themselves, playing with exceptional warmth, and a true feeling for the Czech idiom. Their way with the rhythms, along with the sensitive phrasing they achieve, are an absolute joy. This is definitely a must hear collection!more....
