Penguin Guide, January 2009

Gunzenhauser’s Fourth is very convincing. In his hands the fine lyrical theme of the first movement certainly blossoms, and the relative lack of weight in the orchestral textures brings distinct benefit in the Scherzo. The slow movement, too, is lyrical without too much Wagnerian emphasis. The naturally sympathetic orchestral playing helps to make the Eight a refreshing experience, even though the first two movements are rather relaxed and without the impetus of the finest versions. The digital sound is excellent, vivid and full, with a natural concert-hall ambience.

Gramophone, June 1990

"Certainly on neither artistic nor technical grounds can these excellent discs be faulted"

Penguin Guide, January 1990

"All these Slovak performances of Dvorak have more Zest than those recorded for various labels in recent years by the most celebrated of the country's orchestras, the Czech Philharmonic. ... In quality of sound as well as performance, all these discs rival full-price issues."
