Barber Violin Concerto and Other Orchrstral Works

Marin Alsop conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and violinist James Buswell in a gorgeous reading of Samuel Barber's lyrical Violin Concerto. The deeply sad, almost moonlit, atmospheric and romantic opening melody sings out in this reading and the contrast in the more complex First Movement's development section is all the more powerful as revealed by Alsop and Buswell's subtle transformations of mood and tempo. Marin Alsop is proving to be a superb interpreter of Barber's orchestral canon. Alsop was mentored by Leonard Bernstein and her conducting shows his influence, especially in his earlier year's, with its incisive fire and cogent organization. The Royal Scottish National Orchestra plays this (relatively) unfamiliar American music in a clear and idiomatic fashion. The "fillers" include fine readings of the Souvenirs for Orchestra, the Opus 1 String Quartet arranged for full orchestral strings and the Music for a Scene from Shelley, also in thoughtful, well-organized readings. This is very beautiful music and a highly suggested download!
