THE JOURNAL, November 1990

"Dvorák's ever-popular New World Symphony is given a marvellously colourful and faithful performance by the Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra under Stephen Gunzenhauser. ... Tempi are well-judged and the playing extremely respectable."



Gramophone, June 1990

"Gunzenhauser's is a vibrantly exciting reading, helped by sound that is more present and brilliant than in the earlier issues in his Dvorák cycle. The impact of the performance is undeniable, particularly the finale, which moves forward with a consistently dramatic impetus. There is fine playing in the Largo. Where Gunzenhauser scores is in also offering a highly spontaneous account of Dvorák's engaging Symphonic variations, where the vivid orchestral response blows all the cobwebs off this underrated piece, full of the most attractive Dvorákian invention."



Penguin Guide, January 1990

"Mozart piano concertos, are thick on the ground with the lovely bargain basement Naxos series scoring highly."

Fanfare

"its simple unpretentiousness touches a nerve in Dvorak's musical character"
