 Gorgeous late romantic December 8, 2012 By J. Wallace-Smith (Charlottesville, VA) See All My Reviews "If you have not heard the Slovak Suite, I would urge you to listen to this beautiful piece by a late romantic composer who displays a deep spirituality. Pesek and the RLPO deliver a wonderful performance and the Virgin recording is first-rate." Report Abuse
