There is no one like Kertesz

I was delighted to see that this recording was re-issued. This is by far the most wonderful performance/recording of the Dvorak 8th I’ve ever heard. Kertesz understands this work as no one else does. There are many fine recordings of the 9th but he stands alone with the 8th.
