I have just been immersing myself in the music of Samuel Barber (of Adagio for Strings fame).

A couple of nights ago I heard a live performance of Barber’s marvelous Knoxville Summer of 1915 with piano and soprano. But the next afternoon I had to play it again in the Columbia Odyssey performance with William Strickland and the Dumbarton Oaks Orchestra. My copy is on vinyl, “electronically rechanneled for stereo,” but it sounded surprisingly good. The soprano is Eleanor Steber, who commissioned the work from Barber in the first place, and she is out-and-out wonderful. Leontyne Price has recorded it, but she is too “operatic” for my taste. I have not heard Dawn Upshaw’s version. Great piece: warm, romantic and nostalgic. The words are a poetry/prose piece by James Agee who (he said) took only 90 minutes to write it.

After that, I had to rehear my recording of Dover Beach, sung by Barber himself on Nonesuch Records. Another great piece, this one put to words by Matthew Arnold. Dietrich Fischer Dieskau has another version: more polished and professional, but not as authentic.

Finally, I had to hear the Barber String Quartet, the second movement of which is the aforementioned "Adagio for Strings."

I'm tempted to say, "Barber: the perfect solution for long-hair musicians." But I won't.

Chuck, nice post and great to see you around here again :)  To continue the Barber theme, I just put on the Barber Violin Concerto, a lovely 24/96 hirez remaster of the Isaac Stern with Leonard Bernstein and the New York PO:

Thanks, Tyson. I'll look for it. I need to come up and hear your system again sometime. Chuck

You should!  I've got some new SET and SEP amps I'm using, my preamp went through an overhaul and I now have a nice tubed DAC in my setup.  For tube lovers like us, it's a substantial step up over what you heard the last time you were here.

Tyson,
Turns out I have that same Barber Violin Concerto recording, but on vinyl (2i Columbia). I just listened to it. Well played, but typical "Columbia bright."  Never mind, the piece is sublime.

Turns out the Hindemith concerto on that same disc is pretty good too!  I think the remaster has tamed the brightness as it is not at all unpleasant on my setup.  The soloist is certainly in the spotlight and a bit larger than life, but no screechiness here.

Throwback, try his piano sonata. I like Earl Wild playing it plus the other works on this disc are great too.  ("modern" sounding.) PS - Stay away from Dawn Upshaw.
