The monumental symphonic tetralogy by Josef Suk (1874-1935) Asrael, Summer Tale, Ripening and Epilogue is rounded out in this complete collection of symphonic poems by Praga and the famous suite Fairy Tale in brilliant interpretations by the Czech Philharmonic and conductors Vaclav Neumann (CD 1, 3, 4) and Libor Pesek (CD 2, 3 - Fairy Tale Op. 16). - Asrael was dedicated to "the exalted memory of Dvorak and Otylie /Mrs. Suk." - Summer Tale was conceived as a gathering of his impressions of the positive effect of the countryside on the soul of a man wounded by the blows of fate. - The symphonic poem Ripening - Suk's "song of life, mighty in its internal tension and masterful architecture." - Epilogue - the close of the tetralogy, based on a text by Ladislav Vycpavek - first presented on December 20, 1933 by Vaclav Talich and the Czech Philharmonic. Josef Suk's symphonic monument - a gem of Czech music.
