Antonín Dvorák's Stabat Mater, Op. 58, truly merits the adjective "tragic"; it was written after the deaths of two of the composer's children in succession, and his grief rolled out in great, Verdian waves. There are several strong recordings on the market, including an earlier one by conductor Jiří Bělohlávek himself, but for the combination of deep feeling, technical mastery from musicians and singers who have spent their lives getting to know the score, and soloists who not only sound beautiful but are seamlessly integrated into the flow, this Decca release may be the king of them all. To what extent was the strength of the performance motivated by Bělohlávek's likely fatal illness (he died days after the album entered the top levels of classical charts in the spring of 2017)? It's hard to say, although he also delivered top-notch performances of Dvorák's Requiem in his last days. The members of the Prague Philharmonic Choir sing their hearts out in the gigantic, shattering opening chorus, which has rarely if ever had such a mixture of the impassioned and the perfectly controlled. Sample the chorus "Virgo virginium praeclara" to hear the magically suspended quality Bělohlávek brings out of the singers in lightly accompanied passages. The soloists, soprano Eri Nakamura, mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, tenor Michael Spyres, and bass Jongmin Park -- an international group in this otherwise almost all-Czech production -- are uniformly strong, but what stands out most is how inevitable their entrances sound. If this turns out to be Bělohlávek's swan song, it is an accomplishment for the ages. Highest possible recommendation. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - Choc de Classica - 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
The late, great Czech conductor Jiří Bělohlávek was active until shortly before his death in May of 2017, and record companies have realized the high quality of his recordings of Czech music during his last years and rushed to issue it. This double-CD set from Decca of Leos Janáček's music combines recordings from various sessions, although all were made at the Rudolfinium in Prague, a hall that Bělohlávek knew inside and out. There's nothing here to quite match Bělohlávek's shattering Ma Vlast with the Czech Philharmonic, also issued by Decca in 2018, and at some points in the symphonic poem Taras Bulba, based on Gogol's novel, the Czech Philharmonic strings lack their usual sheen. But all the virtues of Bělohlávek's conducting are on display here: his awesome attention to detail, his deliberate approach and way of making space for the long line, his profound Czech melodies. And you do get a joyous reading of the Sinfonietta, recorded just a few months before the conductor's death. The main attraction, the Glagolitic Mass, is recommended. There are many recordings of this work, one of the few to apply late Romantic idioms to sacred music effectively (the title refers to the alphabet used to write the Old Slavonic text of the mass), but Bělohlávek and the Czech Philharmonic give it great weight and depth. A bonus is the early and underexposed tone poem The Fiddler's child (1912), where you can almost sense Janáček straining to depart from Dvorák's example. Recommended. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
This was not the last recording made by the great Czech conductor Jiří Bělohlávek; it was taken from festival performances in 2014. It is perhaps, however, the final Bělohlávek release, and as such it makes a fine swan song. There is perhaps no Czech symphonic work outside of Dvorák's collection more widely recorded than Má Vlast, Bedrich Smetana's collection of tone poems about the physical Czech landscape. Yet there is no sense of convention about this reading with the king of all Czech ensembles, the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra: all of the six parts of Má Vlast are carefully shaped, and they're often thrilling. The mystery of the historical music of the castle in the opening "Vysehrad" is palpable. Sample perhaps "Vltava" (The Moldau), the second tone poem, the most familiar of them everywhere. Here it is not the usual river, dancing in regular tempo, but a set of rapids rippling with some vigor. Bělohlávek's interpretations of the pieces fit together into a coherent whole, with a richly triumphant finale in "Blanik," and the Czech Philharmonic, sinewy and strong, has never sounded better. Definitive Smetana, with fine sound from Decca. © TiVo
