CD release: Dvorak Symphony No 8 – Mackerras

The new CD release on the LPO Label is a tribute to conductor Sir Charles Mackerras, who worked regularly with the London Philharmonic Orchestra over four decades.

ANTONIN DVORAK
Symphonic Variations
Symphony No.8

SIR CHARLES MACKERRAS conductor
LONDON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

Sir Charles Mackerras and the London Philharmonic Orchestra shared a musical heritage spanning 45 years. His début performance with the Orchestra in 1958 began with Dvořák’s Carnival Overture and in 2003 he made what would be his final appearance with the Orchestra conducting Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7. This live recording of Dvořák’s Symphonic Variations and Symphony No. 8 from 1992 pays tribute to a partnership that exuded a joy and vivacity in musicmaking that lives on in the memory of the Orchestra and its audience and can now be discovered and cherished anew.
