The Czech conductor Rafael Kubelik is considered to be one of the greatest conductors of the second half of the 20th century. This collection contains recordings made between 1948 and 1959 with orchestras which played an important role in his artistic life, including the Czech Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Philharmonia, and the Royal
Philharmonic Orchestra. Kubelík was deeply rooted in the music of his home country and the composers of the Bohemian-Moravian tradition such as Janácek, Smetana, Dvorák, and Martinu are all featured in this 10 CD set.

Rafael Kubelik is particularly revered for his performances of the music of his Czech compatriots, and this set includes legendary recordings of Smetana‘s “Ma Vlast“, and Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 “New World”. Kubelík was also known as a pioneering interpreter of the music of Mahler and the collection features him conducting two of the composer’s symphonies, Nos. 1 and 5. In addition he was known as a champion of the musical avant-garde of his time, and music by Schoenberg, Hindemith and Bartok are presented here alongside works from the classical and romantic traditions by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Bruch.
