Format: CD reissue
Description: This reissue series of the major Slovak symphonist continues with the Little Symphony of 1942, a 24-minute work in five movements which is derived from an earlier wind quintet, while the big, three-movement, 41-minute Fourth (1947; rev. 1957), with its occasional suggestions of Mahler and Sibelius, combines protest at the injustice of war with the past history of the Slovaks. Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Ladislav Novák. Original 2000 Marco Polo release.
