“The Sixth Symphony is a stirring, melodic work that enjoyed great success in the composer’s own lifetime. It is lush and romantic; perhaps its biggest excitement comes from a driving third movement inspired by the rhythms of the furiant, a Czech folk dance. Kreizberg and his virtuoso musicians have a field day with this movement”.

Rad Bennett

“The opening strings have to sound dark and mysterious, and this is best achieved by making the articulation legato and less detached; this makes the opening forte with the brass more effective and striking, especially if they come in with a sharper distance and greater staccato between the chords.
The sound on this issue is sumptuous; you will not hear finer, more articulate clarity in the orchestra on any other recording that I know of, and the piano sounds simply marvelous, clean, bold, and rich. The surround is very effective, truly enhancing the vagaries of the listening space, and providing a direct and effective aural focus.Unreservedly recommended”.

Steven E. Ritter


“Yakov Kreizberg turns in a personal, persuasive account of the Sixth Symphony….Kreizberg’s view of The Water Goblin also is very well paced and dramatic. A very enjoyable disc”.

David Hurwitz

“The remarkable and colorfully orchestrated tone poems based on the folk ballads of Karel Jaromir Erben obviously fuel Kreizberg’s dramatic instincts. He gives an electrifying account of the grisly events depicted in The Water Goblin. In fact, his performances of the three Dvo?ák tone poems he has recorded so far are second to none”.

Arthur Lintgen


“It’s a first rate account, made even more effective by the virtuosity and commitment of the orchestra, which provides excellent ensemble and an impressive level of definition in the inner parts”.

Peter J. Rabinowitz

"A reading that consistently brings out the fact that not a bar could have been written by any other composer"
