Recording of the Year

..."An idiomatic performance from a “local” and accomplished orchestra, skilful conducting and first rate recording make this disc a real treat."...
-Rob Maynard

New York - Album of the week

...It is thus interesting to listen to Fibich’s Symphony No 1 in F, Op 17, and his Op 54 symphonic suite Impressions from the Countryside, nicely performed by the Czech National Symphony...
Steven J. Haller American Record Guide

...Do you like Dvorak? Then you’ll like Fibich…we may be grateful to Naxos for such a fine introduction...Stilec fills out the program handsomely with a suite called Impressions from the Countryside…
- Steven J. Haller

Rob Maynard MusicWeb International ..Štilec’s account is altogether lighter and more airy than that of his rivals, fully in keeping with the emphasis he places on the score’s pastoral elements...

David Denton, David´s Review Corner
