The exuberant start of a special edition dedicated to a conducting legend of the 20th century-Vaclav Talich. - 16 Slavonic Dances in an extraordinary interpretation by Vaclav Talich and the Czech Philharmonic from the historic 1950 Supraphon recording. - A version which established the interpretational tradition of the Slavonic Dances, admired in its time and still magical today. - Talich's Dvorak not as "a musician who writes dance music, but as a poet of rhythm." - The eight Slavonic Dances from 1878 (originally for piano, four hands) were one of Dvorak's first steps towards world renown. "A divine naturalness flows through this music. Not a trace of anything mechanical or forced," wrote one critic. Dvorak wrote an additional eight dances in 1886 when he was already a famous composer, and later orchestrated both sets. Vaclav Talich - an ingenious conductor of the Czech Philharmonic
