John Axelrod celebrates Berstein's Centennial with the Prague Radio Symphony

Great enthusiasm for the opening concert of the Prague Symphony Orchestra season which saw John Axelrod celebrate Leonard Bernstein's Anniversary with the Chichester Psalms alongside Mahler's 4th Symphony: "John Axelrod showed a deep understanding of the composing world of both: in Mahler's Fourth Symphony he brought out the sweet and bizarre aspects, the intensity and unpredictability of the contrasts were never exaggerated, maintaining the pastoral tone; he then made Bernstein's Chichester Psalms distinctive in their deep emotion and external enchantment" writes Petr Veber on KlasikaPlus.cz
