Notes & Reviews:

This is the sixth and final volume in the acclaimed Naxos series of the complete orchestral works of Samuel Barber conducted by Marin Alsop. 'The Capricorn Concerto', named arter Barber's beloved home at Mount Kisco, is a jewel-like concerto full of rhythm, movement and light. The 'Intermezzo' from Barber's second opera 'Vanessa' is a haunting and gorgeous orchestral fantasia, one of his most beautiful works. The 'Canzonetta', his last work, is from an unfinished Oboe Concerto.
