This compilation presents a selection of the recordings that were the fruit of the cooperation between the conductor and the orchestra. Sawallisch’s programs in Prague repeatedly included pieces by Mozart and Beethoven, as well as major works by Czech composers (Smetana, Janáček, Martinů, Kalabis, Eben, etc.). Sawallisch’s relationship to Czech music is probably best described by the following quotation from a contemporary review: “He apprehends and interprets music by Czech composers as though he himself had been brought up in their language.” The precious Czech Radio live recordings are released by Supraphon for the very first time to mark the 90th anniversary of the late conductor’s birth.
