Reviews of recordings in box:

ON DVORAK 9

It has the kind of freshness and vigor that remind one of what it was like to hear this piece for the very first time. … Kubelíkhas captured the enthusiasm of his players and generates a sense of excitement and poetry. .. The recording has great dynamic range and encompasses the most featherweight string "pianissimo" tothe fullest orchestral "tutti" without discomfort . . . Very special, very Kubelík.

Record Review / Robert Leighton, Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone (London) / 01. June 2016

ON THE ITALIAN "SYMPHONY EDITION" FROM 2014

The Beethoven cycle is 'very Kubelík' in that it goes global, with each symphony calling on a different national orchestra, highlights being the Berlin Phil "Eroica" (full-bodied and finely detailed), the Israel Phil Fourth (an expressive Adagio and a fiery finale) and the Munich "Choral", where Kubelíkrealizes the work's many daring prophecies . . .

And yet for me the high point of the entire set is Kubelik'sreading of the Seventh, Mahler as open-minded Bohemian, joker, romantic, the two atmospheric "Nachtmusik" movements quietly playful, the Scherzo a slithery reptile, the ragbag finale unexpectedly conclusive . . .

Record Review / Rob Cowan, Gramophone (London) / 01. August 2014

ON MAHLER 1

The poet among Mahler conductors delivers a performance filled with imagination and delight.
