The Dvorak collaboration with William Steinberg – Milstein’s first inscription had been in Minneapolis with Antal Dorati in 1951 for RCA (LM 1147) – exemplifies what Milstein could do with material often considered less than first rate. Dvorák’s lovely concerto has been making a comeback in concert and on disc, but for years it was neglected largely because of the harsh things that Brahms and Joachim had to say about its refusal to follow strict classical form. As if that matters. The piece employs a generous, wonderful number of folkish and Bohemian tunes, and Dvorák’s decision to throw the work’s musical weight into the finale makes it one of his most satisfying formal experiments. Milstein plays the concerto beautifully, with his typically aristocratic poise and a lightness of rhythm and purity of intonation (in the finale especially) that makes the music seem to float across the bar lines.
The Istvan Kertesz 1967 inscription of Dvorak’s “My Home” fills out his survey of the complete symphony cycle for Decca. Dvorák included My Home in an 1894 concert that premiered his Symphony From the New World (and he had previously conducted the Overture in America.) It is a lively piece, with plenty of nationalistic fervour, based on a tune by Frantisek Skroup entitled ‘My Home’ and a Czech folk-song ‘In the Farmyard.’
