ON DVORAK 9
It has the kind of freshness and vigor that remind one of what it was like to hear this piece for the very first time. … Kubelík has captured the enthusiasm of his players and generates a sense of excitement and poetry. .. The recording has great dynamic range and encompasses the most featherweight string "pianissimo" to the fullest orchestral "tutti" without discomfort . . . Very special, very Kubelík.

Record Review / Robert Leighton, Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone (London) / 01. June 2016

ON THE ITALIAN “SYMPHONY EDITION” FROM 2014
The Beethoven cycle is 'very Kubelík' in that it goes global, with each symphony calling on a different national orchestra, highlights being the Berlin Phil "Eroica" (full-bodied and finely detailed), the Israel Phil Fourth (an expressive Adagio and a fiery finale) and the Munich "Choral", where Kubelík realizes the work's many daring prophecies . . .

And yet for me the high point of the entire set is Kubelik's reading of the Seventh, Mahler as open-minded Bohemian, joker, romantic, the two atmospheric "Nachtmusik" movements quietly playful, the Scherzo a slithery reptile, the ragbag finale unexpectedly conclusive . . .
Record Review / Rob Cowan, Gramophone (London) / 01. August 2014

ON MAHLER 1
The poet among Mahler conductors delivers a performance filled with imagination and delight.
Record Review / Michael McManus, Gramophone (London) / 01. March 2010

FROM THE COMPLETE BOSTON SET
Má vlast was very memorable for its great, rich orchestral sound and the opportunity to perform it with Kubelík, a giant of his generation. He truly lived that piece. One could feel his identity through it, his patriotic pride.

RONALD BARRON
BSO trombonist, section member 1970–75; principal trombone 1975–2008

Kubelík’s Bartók Concerto for Orchestra was the best interpretation I ever played.
I went on to play the piece with many other conductors after Kubelík, and nothing ever came close to his interpretation.

BSO violinist, 1970–1987
