Stunning performance by LA
Eschenbach is among the best of the elite conductors - LA Phil is also one of the best Orchestra's in the world. Great live recording. The Dvorak New World is robust, the Carnival energetic.
I'm not quite sure where the previous negative review is coming from. This performance is crisp, lively, and one of the best I've heard of these pieces. Sound quality and mix is amazing - such clarity. Reviewing classical recordings can be highly subjective and sometimes heavily influenced, in my opionion, by previous interpretations and recordings a listener has heard. Nonetheless, get this recording! For those of you who are unfamilliar with classical music, the Dvorak 9th Symphony is a masterpiece which is highly accessible. You won't go wrong.
Agreed that Eschenbach is one of the best and that the Carnival Overture needs to be played more often. That said these are altogether sub par performances of otherwise stellar musicians. The LA seems to be less focused and plays too loose in the pocket for my taste. Of course it's a live recording and nobody is perfect so perhaps everyone was having an off night. It happens. -Bz
