Steve Schwartz
Classical Net, October 2011

As disappointing as I found Kuchar’s “Classical” Symphony, I think he does a wonderful job in the second – indeed, the best recorded performance I know (my previous favorite, Järvi on Chandos). The textures of the first movement don’t gum up and he manages to impart a terrific sense of pace, although the composer ultimately louses him up. I recommend the disc for the Second and for the Autumnal Sketch. The sound is quite good.



Fanfare

"the performance which can compete with those found on several full-priced versions...Kuchar and his orchestra can stand next to the big boys"



Gramophone

"The intensity of feeling is so often right - the fact that this is the orchestra of Prokofiev's native Ukraine might have something to do with it"
