The BBC Music Magazine wrote:
“Hough joins forces with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons for a robust, grand reading that nonetheless leaves room for lyricism and introspection…[but it’s in the Dvorak] that Hough truly sparkles. There’s glowing tenderness, irresistible buoyancy and soaring grandeur in the first movement, Grieg-like lyricism in the Andante sostenuto…while the Finale has infectious spirit. The CBSO’s playing is smart and colourful.”
