Notes & Reviews:

"Dvorak's string Serenade is given a smooth, silky performance that never loses its cool, an appropriate attitude for an early work in which the composer had yet to develop much character. The Hungarian ensemble is just large enough - a photo shows 19 young musicians - so that individual instruments seldom stand out... The recording is equally smooth... The two encores are fun..." -North, Fanfare
