There are many great recordings out there of the Dvorak symphonies, especially the 8 & 9, but the performances on this ablum are top of the line. The Number 7 in perticular is outstanding, but the 8th is also great in my opinion. If you like George Szell or Bruno Walter recordings of Dvorak, then Christoph Dohnanyi will be a good version to have as well.
Recordings from the Cleveland Orchestra are always good or great performances, its rather rare for them to produce a bad recording in my opinion.
In addition to the great Cleveland Orchestra, one could also sample the fine Kubel rendition of Symphonies 8 & 9 by Rafael Kubelik and the Berliner Philharmoniker. While I own both the Kubelik 8 & 9, along with the Harnoncourt 9th, these great Dohnanyi recordings have passed both on my playing list. There is no doubting the quality of the Kubelik recordings, but the Dohnanyi recordings have become my personal favorites. The 8th symphony in particular, gets played rather frequently.
Dohnanyi also recorded the 6th Symphony, but its not available on iTunes and the CD is out of print.
