New release: Dvořák with Houston Symphony

This week the Houston Symphony released its first recording in five years, and first under the guidance of conductor and music director Andrés Orozco-Estrada. The album features Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 7 and Symphony No. 8; both pieces were performed at Jones Hall between April 2014 and March 2015. This is the first in a series of Dvořák recordings to be made by the symphony and marks the beginning of a partnership with Pentatone. May 1 brings the release of a three-disc Dvořák series that includes Symphony No. 6 with Slavonic Dance Opus 72, No. 3, and Slavonic Dance Opus 46, No. 8. A third release, which includes Symphony No. 9 with two additional Slavonic Dances, will be released later this year.
