Penguin Guide, January 2009

Gunzenhauser’s coupling is recommendable even without the price advantage. The beguiling opening of the Fifth, with its engaging Slovak wind solos, has plenty of atmosphere, and the reading generates a natural lyrical impulse. The Seventh, spontaneous throughout, brings an eloquent Poco adagio, a lilting Scherzo and a finale that combines an expansive secondary theme with plenty of excitement and impetus.



Gramophone, June 1990

This account of no. 5 comes close to rivalling what currently is my record of the year, and that is the highest praise.



Penguin Guide, January 1990

"All these Slovak performances of Dvorák 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."



Fanfare

"It is hard to fault this disc in most respects"
