Andrés's recent recording with the Houston Symphony of Dvorák’s 7th and 8th Symphonies is a WCLV Choice CD for May. We are featuring it all month long. The terrific, passionate Dvorák performances on this CD were recorded live in concert in Houston’s Jones Hall: Symphony No. 7 in April 2014 and No. 8 in March 2015.
This is the first of a three disc series of the four late symphonies by the Czech master. The Symphony No. 6 with two Slavonic Dances is expected to be released May 1st. Then Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’ with two other Slavonic Dances should be released later this year. To purchase a copy, click here.
