More Info:

The Czech Philharmonic and it's Chief Conductor and Music Director Semyon Bychkov present a new recording of Antonin Dvorak's Symphonies 7, 8 and 9, coupled with the composer's concert overtures In Nature's Realm, Carnival and Othello. The album is part of the 2024 Year of Czech Music. Dvorak's final three symphonies show him at the peak of his compositional power and international fame, and exhibit an astonishing range of style and expression. The three concert overtures were initially conceived as the Nature, Life and Love trilogy, but eventually published separately. They share Dvorak's audible love for nature and fascination for human life and passion. Presenting this core Czech repertoire allows the orchestra and maestro to once more demonstrate their congenial collaboration and full command of Dvorak's abundant sound world. The Czech Philharmonic is one of the world's orchestral gems, recognised for it's rich tradition with the Czech masters as well as European repertoire. Semyon Bychkov, who is internationally renowned for his interpretations of the core repertoire, began his tenure with the Orchestra at the start of the 2018/19 season.?Together, they have so far recorded for PENTATONE Mahler's First, Second, Fourth and Fifth Symphonies (2022-2023), part of the complete Mahler cycle to be released by the label. The Orchestra is also featured on the albums Folk Songs (2023) and Czech Songs (2024) recorded by Magdalena Kozena and Sir Simon Rattle.
