#99 The Smell of Prudence

This piece of music is not in a hurry. Even when you'd expect it to get faster, to start act the fool, it's still prudent, judicious, broad, playing on its own terms.

PSO shines in strings, especially cellos and double basses have very vidid color with wonderful dark shadows. Right now I'm desiring to taste Bělohlávek's approach (much faster than this one) and compare him to Netopil (his pupil). Voracity, thy name is music.

Composer: Josef Suk
Work: Symphony in E Major, IV. Allegro
Recording: Prague Symphony Orchestra, Tomáš Netopil
