Herbert Blomstedt conducts Dvořák and Berwald

Melancholy while powerful, never maudlin: that’s Antonín Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony. The mixture of varied moods is particularly compelling, for instance, in the Scherzo, which is at the same time lugubrious and dance-like. Together with it, Herbert Blomstedt conducts a rediscovery: Franz Berwald’s Third Symphony, a stirring work sometimes reminiscent of Mendelssohn that the Berliner Philharmoniker last performed in 1950.
