Fibich: Symphony No 1,At Twilight & The Romance of Spring Czech Philharmonic Chorus & Orchestra / Karel Šejna      Supraphon

I'm enjoying these Fibich symphonies. This was one of the two Supraphon Fibich cd's that arrived today. It was Senja that " did it" for me. Ancient old recordings made in the 50's and 60's! Most of them in mono! His music makes me think of early Dvořák. He's not as good at tunes,to be quite honest,but I think they are well crafted and beautifully orchestrated. (I think the word might be,"felicitous"?) Nothing epoch making,but I can understand why his own countrymen (and women!) have a high opinion of his music,now! Very relaxing! Nice! The recording's on this particular cd are in (very good) mono!:)  Smiley NB:I was going to say he was better than Draeseke;but that doesn't sound so good!! Grin Incidentally,The two shorter pieces (At Twilight & The Romance Of Spring" for soprano and bass soloists, chorus and orchestra) are quite delightful & probably even better than the symphony,really;fine & enjoyable as that (undoubtedly,imo) is!
