Notes & Reviews:

Previous issues in the Samuel Barber series on Naxos have met with high praise from the critical press, including a "10/10" rating from Classics Today and an Editors Choice from Gramophone magazine. This new issue features Barber's lyrical Cello Concerto together with a suite from the ballet music of "Medea." Best known of all Barber's music is his evocative "Adagio for Strings," a work of deep feeling that has earned a firm place in American repertoire.
