    Well, I’m sure there’s a good reason for it.

    I consider it to be Germanic. Your results may vary. :-)

    The four Slavonic Rhapsodies of Dvorak (not to be confused with the well known Slavonic Dances ) are sadly neglected in the concert hall and haven't been recorded all that much either .
    I have the superb Naxos recording of them with the conducting duties divided between Libor Pesek and Zdenek Kosler with the Slovak Philharmonic .
    I don't know if this is still in print but if you can find it, grab it ! You will wonder where they've been all your life.

    Bohumil Gregor did a fine, albeit slightly subdued, set of the Slavonic Rhapsodies, with the Czech Phil on Supraphon.

    I thought there were only three of them, mind.....

    Listening to Dvorak's Slavonic Rhapsodies for the first time and enjoying them -- Dvorak has certainly realized his own voice and style in these works. Under-performed, definitely! On Naxos there are now two different CD's available of the three Slavonic Rhapsodies, op. 45 plus the Rhapsody in A minor, op. 14 by the Slovak Philharmonic -- one conducted by Pesek and the other by Kosler.
