BARBER: Knoxville: Summer of 1915 / Essays for Orchestra Nos. 2 and 3

This fifth instalment in ‘Naxos’s continuing and continuously revelatory series devoted to Barber’s music’ (The Daily Telegraph), conducted by Gramophone Artist of the Year 2003 Marin Alsop, features the ripely romantic Knoxville: Summer of 1915, a ‘lyric rhapsody’ for soprano and orchestra, and the rarely-recorded Toccata Festiva for organ and orchestra which, with its fast, furious opening fanfare and virtuosic cadenza, is a veritable tourde- force for the soloist.
