"Stowkowski is one of the most renowned conductors, and Symphony No.9 "From The New World" is one of the best known classical works.
This recording was made in 1927, and the CD was mastered from 78 rpm discs; there are many sonic abberations, despite any restoration that was done.
So if you are looking for a stunning performance and recording of this marvelous work by Dvorak, don't buy this.
If you are looking for a historical recording that might give you a look into why Stowkowski was so good, to hear the nuances and shadings he gave the piece, and experience this piece as only he could interpret it, then this is a good CD to buy.
But don't expect a great, clean recording without mechanical and electronic artifacts."
