Limited Edition 64CD + 2DVD Box Set!

This Limited Edition contains the entirety of Rafael Kubelík's recordings for the Yellow Label, united for the first time in one edition. It features his justly famed Beethoven cycle with nine different orchestras, pioneering cycles of Dvorák's and Mahler's symphonies and standard-setting recordings of works by Janácek, Orff and Smetana.

Rave reviews include the following:

ON DVORAK 9
"It has the kind of freshness and vigor that remind one of what it was like to hear this piece for the very first time ...Kubelík has captured the enthusiasm of his players and generates a sense of excitement and poetry... The recording has great dynamic range and encompasses the most featherweight string "pianissimo" to the fullest orchestral "tutti" without discomfort... Very special, very Kubelík" - Record Review / Robert Leighton, Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone (London) / 01. June 2016
 
ON THE ITALIAN "SYMPHONY EDITION" FROM 2014
"The Beethoven cycle is 'very Kubelík' in that it goes global, with each symphony calling on a different national orchestra, highlights being the Berlin Phil "Eroica" (full-bodied and finely detailed), the Israel Phil Fourth (an expressive Adagio and a fiery finale) and the Munich "Choral", where Kubelík realizes the work's many daring prophecies...
 
And yet for me the high point of the entire set is Kubelik's reading of the Seventh, Mahler as open-minded Bohemian, joker, romantic, the two atmospheric "Nachtmusik" movements quietly playful, the Scherzo a slithery reptile, the ragbag finale unexpectedly conclusive..."
- Record Review / Rob Cowan, Gramophone (London) / 01. August 2014
 
ON MAHLER 1
"The poet among Mahler conductors delivers a performance filled with imagination and delight" - Record Review / Michael McManus, Gramophone (London) / 01. March 2010
