George Szell's dedication to Dvorák is well-documented on CD, most recently with the reissue of his outstanding recordings of Symphonies 7 through 9. But for many Dvorák lovers, his name will be forever associated with this sparkling set of Slavonic Dances, one of the outstanding recordings of the LP era. Along with Kubelik's DG recording, this is the only complete set of Dvorák's miniature masterpieces that deserves to be set alongside classic Czech versions by conductors such as Talich and Sejna. Not only is the playing of the Cleveland Orchestra exceptional, but Szell positively luxuriates in Dvorák's generous fund of melody.
