This album contains two major works by Antonin Dvořák. Historically informed playing by a modern symphony orchestra. Sir Roger Norrington is among the most renowned conductors of our time. He celebrates his 85th birthday in March 2019. Re-release of an SWR bestseller (93.251.)

During his time with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (SWR) Roger Norrington succeeded in an ambitious project: His performances with a modern symphony orchestra were to be based on historically informed performance practices. The results were enlightening and inspiring, not least on this Dvořák album.
