MG-50002: DVORÁK: Symphony No.5 in E minor, Op.95 “From The New World”
Chicago Symphony, Kubelik

[Front Cover] Label Type : Maroon Mercury Olympian Series Living Presence High Fidelity
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG 50002A FR2    A2    I
SIDE-B MG 50002B FR2    D1    I



Comments

According to the label's print, MG-50002 is a renumbered issue of MG-10118.

This copy's matrix imprints has FR suffix (Indy-pressed) - I believe the earliest copy should have YMG prefix and MF suffix. And this copy may be middle 1950s pressings.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Rafael Kubelik and Chicago Symphony left a series of fine recordings. This “New World” symphony is also thrilling and powerful as the rest of their 1951-1953 sessions.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

8 out of 10
