 Marin Alsop
Barber: Symphonies Nos 1 and 2; Essay for Orchestra No. 1; Overture: The School for Scandal – Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Marin Alsop

‘The two symphonies are played on Naxos with passionate commitment and deep lyrical feeling by the Scottish orchestra. The account of the complete Second Symphony will surely confirm the reputation of the war-time work which the composer partly withdrew in despondency after its neglect. The First Essay for Orchestra also generates a powerful atmosphere when played with such depth of feeling. With spectacular recording, this exciting collection is very strongly recommended.’
