4.0 out of 5 star rating 4.0

COMPOSERS: Brahms/Dvorak
LABELS: RCA VICTOR Silver Seal
WORKS: Symphony No. 4; Symphony No. 8
PERFORMER: Boston SO/Charles Munch
CATALOGUE NO: 09026 61206-2 ADD (1958, 1961)
Recorded in the last years of Munch’s tenure with the Boston Symphony, these performances, which have transferred well, are both strong and direct. The Dvorák, however, is noticeably fuller, with a vigour and robustness not entirely lacking in the Brahms – particularly in the fourth movement. A generous coupling: good value. Nicholas Rast
