Please note: Popularly known as the New World Symphony, in older literature and recordings, this symphony was often numbered as Symphony No. 5. It is widely known today as Symphony No. 9 in E minor, From the New World. Composer Antonin Dvorak wrote it in 1893, it is by far his most popular symphony.

Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Istvan Kertész

Kertesz's approach is as simple and straight forward as could be, yet the hushed intensity of the playing conveys a depth of feeling that makes one hear the music with new ears. The recording quality is outstanding, among the best this symphony has had. The performance is enjoyable and agreeably fresh, and there is a sudden quickening of tempo after its reprise at the end. There is plenty of excitement and the Vienna Philharmonic plays the Largo most beautifully.



1. Adagio - Allegro Molto
2. Largo
3. Scherzo (Molto Vivace)
4. Allegro Con Fuoco

A clean pressing on 180-gram vinyl of a wonderful performance of Dvorak's 9th. This is my favorite performance of this masterwork, and the cleaning resolution here revealed nuances that I had never heard before. The SACD of this recording fetches $200 on EBay. You can get the vinyl recording, which is just as good IMO, for a fraction of the cost! Buy it (you won't regret it!)!
