Dvorak: Slavonic Dances

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Nikolaus Harnoncourt has completely rethought Dvorak's Slavonic Dances. Some of the tempos he's chosen are untraditional, but in terms of clarity of articulation and attention to orchestral color, there is a freshness here that helps to renew one's appreciation for these popular showpieces.

But those who have already fallen under this music's spell owe it to themselves to hear Harnoncourt and the COE's affectionate, vibrant interpretations. Think of it as a second honeymoon.
Gramophone - Rob Cowan
Harnoncourt's high energy levels never precludes delicacy, or transprency or even the occasional suggestion of sentiment.... Tempo relations have been thought through to the last semiquaver.... That Harnoncourt loves this music is beyond doubt, and that he understands it is beyond question.
BBC Music Magazine - Jan Smaczny
Harnoncourt's [performances] go straight to the top of my list -- one of the most refreshing recordings I have heard in years.
