Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

"Fiery and intense in the opening movement, Swensen produces a particularly magical sound in the gorgeous lyrical melodies of the slow movement. A minor quibble is his somewhat mannered phrasing in the opening melody of the Finale. In the Czech Suite, the conductor's brisk no-nonsense tempo for the 'Sousedska' robs the movement of some of its innocent charm, though the rest of the work is delivered with plenty of warmth and rhythmic incisiveness, the 'Furiant' in particular building up a really exciting head of steam." -Erik Levi, BBC Music
