Catalogue Number: 02T048
Label: SWR Music
Description: Although we offer this for the recording of Krejči’s 1948-50 Serenade (a 1957 Supraphon mono version came out in 2005 in the label’s “Ančerl Gold Edition”), its manically high-spirited outer movements enclosing a strings-only slow movements based on two Czech folskongs sounding superb in good stereo, we also draw your attention to the fact that this is the only commercially available recording this conductor made of Suk’s masterpiece. SWR Orchestra Baden-Baden; Karel Ančerl (rec. May 1967).
