Description
Along with the famed Adagio for Strings and the nostalgic song cycle Knoxville: Summer of 1915 (with a text by James Agee), this overview of the most popular pieces by American composer Samuel Barber also includes the two Essays for Orchestra, The School for Scandal Overture, and Medea's Dance of Vengeance.

"The Levi/Atlanta disc provides the best sound quality and a lovely rendition of Knoxville: Summer of 1915."—Fanfare

"Levi, 41, has taken command of an orchestra distinctly removed from the world's acknowledged music capitals and— through concerts at home and on tour, and most especially, through recordings—he has built a reputation for himself and his orchestra that is increasingly the envy of his Big Five American counterparts in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago and Cleveland.... A dramatic, even passionate interpreter of most of the works he conducts—but never at the expense of the musical line or his quest for technical perfection."—Gramophone
