-----

Excerpt of a review from a previously released edition of this cycle:

Suitner’s versions of the symphonies came as a big and really happy surprise. Sample the vitality and freshness Suitner brings to the scherzo of the Second Symphony, or the dramatic power at the climax of the Seventh’s first movement. The performances are all of a piece: vibrant, propulsive, wonderfully played, without a single dead spot or interpretive misstep. They belong in any serious Dvorák collection.
