Review By CD Review,July 1989

"The sound is suitably full-blooded... I relished the detail in the recording—the chirping woodwind is a delight—and these are deftly-pointed, spirited, idiomatic performances, full of colour."

Review By Classic CD,

"A competent and even insightful reading. For most listeners, however, the sheer joy of the music will make this a recording to treasure. From the beginning of the first suite (Op. 46) we are drawn in by the spirited performance of Zdenek Kosler and the Slovak Philharmonic. The second suite (Op. 72) begins no less joyously, with a B major gallop reminiscent of Johann Strauss. Dance No. 12 opens with a light, reflective mood like a Debussy tone poem, and the atmosphere is perfectly controlled by Kosler's sensitive conducting. In contrast, the "Dance No. 15" is orchestral fireworks from beginning to end.
