Claus Peter Flor and the Malasian Philharmonic Orchestra follow their acclaimed recordings of Smetana's Má Vlast and Suk's 'Asrael' with Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7.

The Seventh is considered by many to be his greatest work, achieving immediate success at its première performance in London in 1885.

The work is coupled with the concert overture Othello, and The Wild Dove – based on an epic poem by the Czech poet Karel Erben.

BBC Music Magazine

July 2012

****

“Flor's account of Symphony No. 7 lacks drama but is well compensated by colourful performances of The Wild Dove and the Othello Overture.”

International Record Review

June 2012

“Flor paces the music through to its ultimate stasis with unerring control...[there's] little to fault in the playing of the Malaysian forces or the wide-ranging sound”

Gramophone Magazine

August 2012

“You have a definite sense of a charted terrain, with subtle shifts of pace as the scenery changes...Flor achieves a pleasing lift at the start of the Scherzo and I like the way the Trio floats into earshot. The finale is powerful...Othello in particular is superb and the Malaysian Philharmonic play brilliantly throughout.”

MusicWeb International

26th February 2014

“The polished-sounding Malaysian Philharmonic keeps its cool surprisingly well under the circumstances, maintaining good ensemble throughout. The string sonorities have a nice sheen. The woodwinds play with transparent tone and phrase sensitively; the brass are firm and solid.”
