Vaclav Talich conducts Czech Philharmonic Orch., performing Symphonic Poems by Dvorak (rec.1950/51, CD)

£5.99

Product description

Starting out as a talented violinist, Vaclav Talich (1883-1961) was sure that he was going to stay in that position, until the mid 1900's, while he was in the position of concert master, at the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The Orchestra's conductor, Arthur Nikisch, so fascinated the young Czech, that he determined to become a conductor, himself.

Then came fifteen years, of wandering and gathering experience. In 1905, he worked in Odessa, Ukraine, for a year, before moving to Tbilisi, in Georgia. For two years, he worked in the capital of his home nation, Prague in Czechoslovakia, where he tried to establish himself as both a choirmaster and conductor ... he was more successful, when he moved on to Ljubljana, Slovenia, where he held the position of chief conductor of the Slovenian Philharmonic, between 1908 and 1912.

Talich then spent several years studying, first in Leipzig, then in Milan, before spending the war years in several roles, including : leading an opera company in Plzen ; teaching violin ; performing, once again, as a violinist (this time, with the Czech Quartet) ; studying scores ; and even educating himself, by reading classical literature in Greek and Latin.

The subject of this compact disc, Antonin Dvorak's Symphonic Poems, is fortuitous, because just after WWI, Talich conducted the premiere of a symphonic poem by Suk, and this conducting performance was one of the main reasons, that the powers-that-be in Czech classical music, chose Talich to be the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra's chief conductor.

2) The Noon Witch Op.108 (14:22)
