Dvorák’s was a strong voice in the re-establishment of Czech musical identity, and the noble themes, open landscapes and dancing Scherzoof the  Symphony No. 6 bear the stamp of a genius at his height. The work can also be heard as a tribute to Brahms, who had helped him earlier in his career. Janácek’s charming  Idyll reflects his preoccupation with Moravian folk-songs and rhythms as well as the influence of his friend Dvorák, identified by Jaroslav Vogel as the work’s “spiritual godfather”.

"... Overall a disc well worth exploring..."

James Norris - Audiophilia.com - July 2013


"Middle-period Dvorák and beguiling early Janácek ... If you were to buy this CD just for the Idyll ... you would be in for a real bargain, even without the Dvorák Sixth. Enough said."
 
Rob Cowan - Gramophone magazine - February 2013

"...The Seattle Symphony strings distinguish themselves and Schwartz has a clear sympathy with this attractive music."

Jan Smaczny - BBC Music magazine - February 2013
