Eschenbach conducts Dvořák

Heart-racing melodies abound in the symphony Dvořák composed while living in New York City, which he hailed, in 1892, for its “lovely buildings and beautiful streets and everywhere, the greatest cleanliness.” The ecstatic symphony remains among the most popular ever penned.

"[Matthias Goerne] dynamic range is huge, and the power at the extremities of his voice are fully equal to that of its middle register." —THE GUARDIAN
