CD Reviews

Beware - Recordings are from 1940's or earlier

(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you are into Kubelik's orchestral interpretations over the years, this may be of interest, but note the sound does in fact sound like old 78 rpm quality; in fact I probably have old 78's that sound better. I was hoping that this CD was a reissue of a Deutsche Grammaphone LP that I have, but missed the small print before purchasing, that said these were "historical performances" that dated (I think) 1946 and earlier. The performance of The Moldau is a little too relaxed for my taste. I prefer a brisker tempo such as is found in the Ma Vlast performance by Zubin Mehta & the Israel Philharmonic on CD, which I'd recommend.
