Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 "New World" & Carnival Overture - Barry Tuckwell, LSO

Home run! This is an excellent digital recording. Barry Tuckwell, once the principal horn player of the London Symphony Orchestra, also proved his mettle as a conductor. He has won many awards for his work as a musician and is still going strong. This recording has all the energy and sweetness needed to keep the adrenaline pumping; moreover, this is great Dvořák.

My grandmother got me this CD when I was in ninth grade, right after I bought a new stereo system with the money I earned as a newspaper delivery boy. MCA Classics is no longer in business, and this recording is no easy find, so enjoy!
