"This is a "desert island" set if ever there were one. Kubelik's Slavonic Dances always have rated among the best, and still dazzle by virtue of their fleetness and almost savage intensity." (ClassicsTodayv on the Slavonic Dances)

"A new box of his complete DG recordings on 64 CDs, most of them with Bavarian radio, confirm my impression of an organic style of music-making in which musicians are not just trusted but also positively encouraged to take risks within the rock-base of Kubelik's confidence...Let me briskly list the indispensables. Kubelik's account of Pfitzner's Palestrina is unsurpassed on record, likewise his Schumann symphonies (the Rhenish, especially), the Smetana symphonic poems and Ma Vlast, and the cycle of Dvorak symphonies that comes to an aching conclusion with the interlude 'My Homeland'." the Spectator
