Notes & Reviews:

"...if you wanted to make a case for Barber's orchestral music...you could scarcely do better than with this disc. Even the Adagio is richer, much more intensely emotional than usual...Medea's Dance of Vengeance also receives an unsparingly eloquent, full-throated reading, and Schippers finds turbulent passion as well as nimble neo-classical qualities in the Second Essay...The recordings are brilliant, with an impressive dynamic range..." MEO, Gramophone
