Notes & Reviews:

Antonin Dvorak's Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 are presented here, masterfully performed by the Houston Symphony. Music Director Andres Orozco-Estrada wonderfully interprets these works, exploring a myriad of emotions from tragedy, to quiet reflection, to grandeur and triumph. This recording was made in Houston, TX at the Jess H. Jones Hall for the Performing Arts in April of 2014 (Symphony No. 7) and March of 2015 (Symphony No. 8).

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
When it comes to sheer vitality and warmth, this Texan ensemble doesn't hold back... AndrTs Orozco-Estrada's is an interpretation full of theatricality, with a sure sense of the monumental. It's all there in the broad sense, in his far-sighted approach to structure and pacing... even if some of it verges on the brash, there's no denying that Orozco-Estrada knows how to fire up his army.
