Seven Reliefs for Large Orchestra (1962)
Symphony #2 (1956-57)
Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/Karel Ancerl
Supraphon SU3700-2 67:48
The Burghauser work is a series of short movements which include nothing dissonant enough to upset your maiden aunt. The main event is the 50+ minute symphony by Dobiá: it might remind you of Khachaturian, Shostakovich, or even Janácek. This is another from Supraphon's extensive back catalog of Ancerl recordings which make one wish for more recordings of music by some of the unfamiliar names among them.
