Notes & Reviews:

This new compilation from Chandos draws together some very fine performances by Neeme Jarvi and the Detroit Symphony from a number of previous Chandos releases. A couple of familiar favorites are here, such as "Medea's Meditation and Dance of Vengeance" and the second of the three Essays for Orchestra. But devotees of Barber's unique neo-Romantic style may make some discoveries in the "other" two Essays, as well as several other rarely recorded works. Fine Chandos recorded sound.
