St. Louis Symphony Orchestra; Susskind, Walter

Composed after the onset of Smetana’s incurable deafness, Má vlast (‘My Fatherland’) is an unprecedented cycle of six related symphonic poems that evoke ancient Czech legends and celebrate the majestic beauty of the country’s landscapes. Heard here in critically acclaimed performances by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Walter Susskind, this Vox Audiophile Edition recording was first released in 1975 and is newly remastered from the original tapes. The Elite Recordings for Vox by legendary producers Marc Aubort and Joanna Nickrenz are considered by audiophiles to be amongst the finest sounding examples of orchestral recordings.
