Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Polish orchestra seems thoroughly at home in Dvorak's sound-world and Gunzenhauser gives warm, vivid performances and is especially evocative in the masterly Golden Spinning Wheel. There is shapley string phrasing and a fine, sonorous contribution from the brass. The concert hall of Polish Radio in Katowice has expansive acoustics - just right for the composer's colourful effects." - PENGUIN GUIDE "The Polish orchestra seems thoroughly at home in Dvorak's sound-world and Gunzenhauser gives warm, vivid performances and is especially evocative in the masterly Golden Spinning Wheel.
