The first recordings of Biblical Songs and Te Deum for Decca. This album concludes Jiří Bělohlávek’s series recordings of Czech masterworks for Decca Classics, completed prior to his passing in 2017.
“The Czech Philharmonic give their collective all; with the best sound Decca has yet achieved at the Rudolfinum, this can be placed next to Charles Mackerras as the finest modern Asrael.” – Orchestral Choice ★★★★★BBC Music Magazine
