Notes and Editorial Reviews
Surely it is not possible to remain unmoved by Kubelik's New World. The relationship with its folk-song and dance (whatever the derivations) sounds instinctive, and the ability to transform them into gorgeous cantabiles or driving symphonic allegros without losing sight of their roots, is given to few. And very few are gifted with his wholly natural flexibility; varying the pulse, often within a single bar, to float and lift phrases; shaping transitions to a different tempo without obvious manoeuvring—I could go on (and on). I am not intimately acquainted with all of the 60 plus versions currently available, but his Berlin account would be among my top three... [B]lazing power and saturated warmth (the DG recording could have been made
yesterday, no exaggeration).
-- Gramophone [7/1992, reviewing DG 427202]
