Lovely review for Jakub Hrůša and PKF - Prague Philharmonia

Our release of Dvořák - Slavonic Rhapsodies & Symphonic Variations got a lovely review from! The album, performed by PKF - Prague Philharmonia and conducted by Jakub Hrůša was awarden 5 out of 5 stars for Sonics and 4,5 stars for Performance! Especially, Hrůša's conducting was praised in the review: ''Hrůša's performances of these pieces abound with charm and flare. All three benefit from the conductor's sprightly tempi and wonderfully idiomatic sound he elicits from his responsive orchestra, while the freshness of the playing by these musicians should endear these neglected Slavonic Rhapsodies to a much wider audience.''

As well, the article mentions the repertoire of the album, and the good sound quality: ''What, however, makes this SACD especially desirable is the inclusion of the three Slavonic Rhapsodies that occupy two thirds of the disc.''

''The whole production is enhanced by the warmth and clarity of PENTATONE's impeccable 5.0 multi-channel DSD recording that convincingly captures the ambience of the reverberant acoustic of the Forum Karlin in Prague without any blurring of orchestral detail.''
