Ranging from idyllic to grandiose, the music is here performed by Claus Peter Flor and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, a team whose recording of the Asrael Symphony (BISSACD1776) by Smetana‘s compatriot Josef Suk made great impact on its release in 2009. Commending the sound quality (‘world-class’), the reviewer on the Classics Today website called it ‘one smoking hot performance’ by an orchestra playing ‘like a pack of demons’. The review in Classic FM Magazine included a ‘go buy recommendation’.

****

“the playing is both warmly expressive and beautifully detailed. The scene- setting opening work, Vysehrad...is spellbindingly performed...this non-Czech performance, by a classy cosmopolitan orchestra, holds its own with the best.”
