Barber Knoxville Summer of 1915 and Essays for Orchestra 2 & 3

Marin Alsop offers idiomatic readings of these Barber masterworks. The moving Knoxville Summer of 1915 (to the poetic introduction to James Agee's novel "A Death in the Family") combines innocence with sadness and is gently and expressively sung by Karina Gauvin. The two great Essays receive very tight, yet dynamic readings and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra handles this unusual (for it) American music with aplomb. This album is both a fine value and a very good representation of these works. The little-played Toccata Festiva provides an (appropriately) loud and "festive" conclusion!

Knoxville Summer of 1915

For any young singer aspiring to become the best, I believe Ms. Gauvin's voice is an example of one of the finest soprano voices you will hear. Her facility is amazing, diction elegant, phrasing & support to be envied and her lithe and unaffected approach to interpreation is just breath-taking. I am thouroughly excited by this amazing talent. You can call me a true fan.
