‘Hearing these two E minor symphonies side by side proved far more stimulating than I anticipated. The orchestral playing is absolutely first-class and Hrůša’s conception of the music is totally compelling. This outstandingly recorded first instalment in a projected cycle pairing all four of Brahms’s symphonies with the last four by Dvořák has set the bar really high.’
