Penguin Guide, January 2009

This is a tidying-up compilation, offering just short of 80 minutes of lesser-known Dvořák, although Silent Woods and the Nocturne are not entirely unfamiliar. The highlights is the American Suite. It is delectably scored and, although lightweight, has great charm. The Seven Interludes were written much earlier, in 1867: they are agreeable enough, but very slight. The Mazurka (1879) for violin and orchestra has something of the flavour of the Slavonic Dances. The dance movements are jolly and infectious, the Polonaise suitably boisterous. The performances here are all of good quality, as is the recording, and with good documentation the disc earns its three stars for enterprise as well as enjoyment.

...Jando's plays with engaging freshness and conveys his own pleasure, and Wit's accompaniment glows with colour...

Classic CD, January 1995

"this infectiously fresh and warmly lyrical account from Jando and the highlysupportive Polish National Radio Orchestra under Antoni Wit"
