Haunting and Beautifully Conducted,
By A Customer
This review is from: Samuel Barber: Orchestral Works, Vol.1 / Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 (Audio CD)
Marin Alsop makes Barber fly in a way no other conductor can. The RSNO gives a haunting performance and this is one of the best recordings of a Barber symphony - ever! Their performance of the Adagio for Strings in March induced tears. This CD is a must in any classical collection.
