Description: The symphony, written only two years before Fibich’s untimely death, reveals his sustained melodic and atmospheric powers as the music pursues the ‘darkness to light’ trajectory synonymous with the symphony during the 19th century. The remaining pieces, drawn from his best stage works, showcase operatic qualities that extend the dramatic lineage of Smetana. Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra; Marek Štilec.
