Giulini's conducting incorporates elements of Furtwangler's and Toscanini's styles. His dynamism and purity of sound are reminiscent of Toscanini, but the spacious, Romantic approach reminds one of Furtwangler. His particular attentiveness to inner voices results in a rich sound. Giulini eschews podium theatrics or autocratic attitudes. Instead, he approaches the musicians as co-workers serving the music." – All Music Guide
 
The Italian conductor Carlo Maria Giulini took Dvorak Seventh Symphony in April 1976 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in No. 1 studio, Abbey Road, along with producer Christopher Bishop and sound engineer Christopher Parker. The recording was made using the CBS "SQ" (Stereo Quadrophonic) system, which was compatible with the normal two-channel stereo playback, but played a quadrophonic result over a four-channel system with a suitable decoder. The system is based on the work of Peter Scheiber, who developed the basic mathematical formulas used in 1970 to bundle four channels into two. The new testament transmission was recorded directly from the original masterbands, and for the first time all the information from the bands was cut onto the LP groove.
 
It is known that cutting for the publication of the first LP was accompanied by limitations and attenuations of the basses. From the musical point of view, the Penguin Guide of 1999 praises Giulini's performance: "He and the musicians really make the music in the D minor symphony a singing, and the Dvořák sunshine breaks through in good steadiness. The shining shot highlights round structures and phrases. "
