I have been looking for a good recording of the Fourth,on it's own,as opposed to,as part of a box set

Yes,and I don't think I've got the Suite?! I'll have to play the Fourth again. I love the way it opens. I'm wondering whether the rest lives up to expectations? That said,I don't think there's a Dvorak symphony I don't like at all. No's ! & 3 are the weakest,for me (I seem to remember?).

Listened to the 24/96 download of the Kertesz 4th the other day.  It's a thrilling performance, beautifully recorded.

This one is a great sounding 4th, and very exciting. Hengelbrock/NDR and Rowicki/LSO offer up a lot of detail and balance, while I go to Jarvi/SNO and Kertesz/LSO for a more muscular tone. These four versions of the 4th are my favorite.
