4.0 out of 5 stars S Barber, 14 Oct 2002
This review is from: Barber: Piano Concerto (Audio CD)
Prutsman is a fine pianist and performs this work with finesse . His technique can meet all the challenges of the concerto and he is ably supported by the R S N O with Alsop in control.
The R S N O shows itself to be as good as many of the top orchestras and their response to the other pieces shows skill and a strong feeling for these works. Marin Alsop obviously has a great sense of what Barber wanted and she is a sure hand on the tiller . Highly recommended.

This review is from: Barber: Piano Concerto (Audio CD)
An exciting recording of a thoroughly 20th Century piano concerto. Kudos to naxos for releasing this great set of recordings from Marin Alsop and the RSNO. The two pieces themselves are essential listening for those interested in Samuel Barber. The Piano Concerto won him the Pulitzer Prize in 1962 while Medea's Dance of Vengeance is an orchestral reworking of his ballet suite from the ballet Medea and one of his most popular works. If you are looking for an introduction to Samuel Barber, buy either this or the disc containing the Cello Concerto (also available on Naxos) and you won't be sorry.
