Description
Recorded live in 1977 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, this program includes Mozart's Bassoon Concerto K. 191, Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, and three works by Dvorák: Carnival, Op. 92, Symphony No. 8, and Slavonic Dance in G Minor, Op. 46, No. 8. Mehta was 41 at the time, having been at the helm of the Philharmonic for 15 years (shortly thereafter he took over the New York Philharmonic).

"Breidenthal, the orchestra's first-desk bassoon, is excellent, as is the orchestral accompaniment, in a charming, thoroughly enjoyable performance…. The playing in the Bartók Concerto is rich and colorful…. The Carnival Overture is kept in careful check, avoiding the chaos into which it often degenerates. This is a marvelous performance, with a strong Czech flavor, which captures all the color and spirit of this small masterpiece. The Eighth Symphony is also very fine…. The playing is excellent throughout the orchestra, and Mehta displays a softness and flexibility…. The G-Minor Slavonic Dance may be the best performance of all; again, Mehta realizes all of its vivacity and charm while keeping it under tight control. All three Dvorák performances are superb; there's no higher compliment than to say that they could be mistaken for some by the Czech Philharmonic."—Fanfare
