106. Ugly, unnatural, ghastly: Dvořák, The Noon Witch

Thrilling, chilling, but still somehow delighting in its brilliance, Dvořák’s Noon Witch packs a punch and leaves you stunned. Also in this episode, free parenting advice and some musings on Dr Suess!

Podcast here [8′] then music below [14′], in fab live-in-concert recordings from the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Sir Charles Mackerras.

Unfortunately you can’t get these as a download. So if you want to buy it, try this recordingfrom the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Rafael Kubelik for only 55p.

If you enjoyed this, check out previous episodes for more excellent Dvorak and if you like Witches head for Musorgsky’s Night on Bare Mountain.
