Notes & Reviews:

"The violin concertos of Gian Carlo Menotti, Alexander Arutiunian, and Samuel Barber provide convincing proof that heart-on-the-sleeve, Romantic rhetoric was not automatically superannuated by the harmonic experimenters who justified their systems as necessary outcomes of inexorable musical evolution...Verdehr's readings of these concertos are straightforwardly Romantic...In Barber's Concerto, he stands up well to such worthies as Isaac Stern and Gil Shaham...Recommended." -Fanfare
