Notes & Reviews:

Although Leon McCawley recorded Barber's piano music 15 years ago for Virgin EMI, he was dissatisfied with the results. On this new set, Leon offers new insight into Barber's piano music with interpretations of added zest and sparkle that are more sure-footed and give a deeper understanding of the composer's intentions.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Champs Hill, Pulborough, West Sussex, England (09/27/2010-09/28/2010).
