Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Krivine secures biting attack in both works using a reduced body of strings, 8.8.7.6.5, which undoubtedly helps in securing great clarity, with timpani standing out cleanly - particularly important in the Dvorßk, and encouraging Krivine to opt for fast allegros. The reduced string band also encourages pianissimos of breathtaking intensity, dramatically contrasted against the sharp impact of the extreme fortissimos. The Schumann Konzertstnck... features four of the orchestra's horn soloists, each producing a ripe, fruity tone, with some brilliant tonguing in the triplets of the first movement and in the scales and arpeggios of the finale.

BBC Music Magazine
This readingà approaches Dvorßk's sound works and with a bracing performance of Schumann's Konzertstnck is certainly worthy of investigation.
