Samuel Barber: Capricorn Concerto; A Hand of Bridge; Intermezzo from Vanessa
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:£8.57+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

I've been interested in this disc for the date "A Hand of Bridge" was written. It's a witty small opera, that could be understood easily without visual performance. Capricorn Concerto and Intermezzo from Vanessa are just things that strengthened my love to Barber's music, so conservatively (but still new and somewhat experimental) beautiful.

Samuel Barber at his most melodious
though his mini-opera satire A Hand of Bridge (10 minutes) will not be to everyone's taste.
The elegiac Canzonetta is his last major piece, written when he knew he was dying,
&, of course, the Vanessa intermezzo is a quietly intense gem.
Marin Alsop very sympatico with Barber's sound world.
