“[Hrůša] shows a most impressive grasp of the work's architecture...[He] has a fine sense of line and his players phrase most lyrically...sensitive, purposeful and obviously warm-hearted - all very welcome qualities in this music.”
International Record Review, January 2011
“Hrůša's bombast-free conducting secures playing of poised grace besides vividness and panache.”
Classic FM Magazine, January 2011 *****
"If there's a comparison to be made with Mackerras, it's that Hrusa also gives this buoyant music light and air as well as forward momentum. And he really dug deep into a tender but complicated adagio, relishing the contrasts between its burbling woodwinds and darker undercurrents: there was profundity here, but no stodge. All that, and then a splendidly clangorous finale where I was almost smiling as much as the first violins: the chemistry is clearly positive."
