Notes & Reviews:

"This is a delightful collection of Dvorak in relaxed mood. All three works date from 1879, just when German publishers were taking note of the colourful Czech composer, whose 'Slavonic Dances' had been such a success. Again exploiting the Czech idiom, these are on the whole gentler, easier-going pieces, notably the 'Czech Suite'... The Polonaise opens brassily with splendid panache, introducing a strongly rhythmic piece full of vigour... All the performances are excellent with Jakub Hrusa, still in his mid-twenties, drawing colourful and alert playing from the Prague Philharmonia, reflecting the fact that he is the talented pupil of Jirí Belohlávek, the founder of that orchestra. First-rate sound." -Gramophone
