Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88.
London Symphony Orchestra – Sir Colin Davis.
“This beautiful performance deserves to win many new friends for Dvořák’s most Brahmsian symphony. Davis’s love of this music shines out of every bar.
“culminating in a towering account of the finale, which unlike many, here emerges as a fully satisfying conclusion”
