Dvořák: Symphony No. 7 38′

If you enjoy Dvorák’s New World Symphony, just imagine the music he wrote when he was happily at home! Dvorák’s Seventh is stormy, passionate and filled with the kind of tunes you just can’t stop humming. Andris Nelsons serves it up with Strauss’s bubbly second horn concerto (starring the CBSO’s own Elspeth Dutch), and Schubert’s Eighth: a symphony that couldn’t be more perfect even if he’d finished it.
