“[Belohlavek’s] return to the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra as music director has brought him back to his emotional and musical heartland. In works by Dvořák and Smetana, unbounded lyricism and Czech melancholy emerged with the authenticity that only this orchestra can bring.” The Guardian

Maestro Belohlavek and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra return to Decca with the unforgettable Slavonic Dances from one of the most melodious, harmonious and evocative late 19th Century composers - Dvorak.

Decca’s acclaimed 2014 Complete Dvorak Concertos and Symphonies release was named as one of the Top Recordings of 2014 by the New York Times: “…the set as a whole stands as eloquent testimony to this eminent orchestra’s triumphant return to international prominence...” James R. Oestreich, New York Times.

Performed and recorded by musicians who have an innate understanding and deep-rooted love for this music of their homeland, this is a first-rate recording, bringing great passion and lyricism to Dvorak’s spellbinding Slavonic Dances.

There is no more authentic team today to play these works: the leading Czech orchestra with the leading Czech conductor, recording in the fine acoustic of the famous Rudolfinum in Prague.

In two sets, the Op.46 Slavonic Dances were such a success on release (in the late 1800’s) that Dvorak’s publisher immediately commissioned a further set (to become the Op.72) – which inspired an equally enthusiastic reception

Lively and colourful, both sets feature a variety of traditional forms of dance; Dvorak expertly working with the leaping gallop, polka odzemek and skocna, contrasted alongside luscious mazurkas and sousedsky.

“The lilting affection for this glorious music is unsurprising from these Czech artists — it’s in their blood.” Sunday Times, 23rd October 2016

“Bělohlávek is especially effective in the Brahmsian contours of the second and eighth of the Op 72 dances...As to Op 46, Bělohlávek offers weighty, purposeful accounts of the faster dances and brings a discernible pastoral element to the slower ones.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2016

Prague Waltzes, B99


Some of Dvořák’s most popular orchestral works – his two sets of Slavonic Dances – as well as lesser-known ones (Legends, Miniatures, Prague Waltzes and the B major Notturno) were all recorded for Philips in stunning sound by Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra. The Slavonic Dances were critically acclaimed when they first appeared in both CD and SACD format and the recording was considered a demonstration disc on SACD. The ten Legends, which, though sometimes dance like, are more often introspective in mood than the Slavonic Dances, and much lesser known. The spirit of Wagner hovers over the rapt Notturno – a work for which Dvořák had an especial fondness. Written a year or so before the Legends, and rather Viennese in style, the Prague Waltzes consist of a string of five waltzes with an exhilarating coda which refers back to the preceding numbers.

“the playing of the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Iván Fischer is attractively idiomatic and the recording is first class in every way” Penguin Guide ***

Václav Neumann, born in Prague and trained as a violinist, first conducted the Czech Philharmonic in 1948; 20 years later, at a crucial time in his country’s history, he became the orchestra’s chief conductor. Recorded in the early 1970s, these performances of Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances exude authenticity of spirit. As Gramophone wrote when they were first released: “This is as enchanting a set of enchanting music as one could hope for.”
