Notes & Reviews:

"The first complete orchestral Barber set makes its appearance on the market in the year of the composer's centenary. It's a pretty impressive set of readings too. The format is a light card box housing the six CDs presented each in its own original jewel case... The RSNO positively glows in this extremely welcome and romantically rewarding and alluringly-priced set. It hardly matters that this is in fact the only such collection." -MusicWeb-International
