Ce premier volume consacré aux oeuvres orchestrales de Barber est le plus intéressant de tous. Les compositions enregistrées ici sont toutes dignes d'intérêt et l'ennui jamais au rendez-vous. En dehors du trop connu « Adagio », l'autre pièce très populaire demeure l'ouverture « The school for scandal », ébouriffante, chatoyante, étincelante dans ses dessins mélodiques et rythmiques. Le premier « Essay » est une commande de Toscanini pour son nouvel orchestre de la NBC. Morceau assez pessimiste, très puissant quant à l'expression et à la fin surprenante. La symphonie n°1 a une structure originale en mouvement continu avec deux parties rapides et un finale « andante tranquillo », d'atmosphères très noires et très puissantes, et tient en haleine jusqu'au bout, sans temps morts ; la n°2, plus classique avec ses trois mouvements, est aussi d'expression grave et remarquablement orchestrée. On ressort un peu « secoué » après une écoute en continu de ce disque mais réconcilié avec une certaine musique américaine de facture « classique » faisant fi du tout-moderne mais combien plus intéressante. Livret en anglais, français et espagnol.

HASH(0x9ad2781c) étoiles sur 5 What a pleasant surprise! 8 juin 2005
Par Joseph Hubbard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I went into a local bookstore to buy a new Mahler 6 recording, but realized I only had 11 dollars left on my giftcard, so I disappointedly decided to search for something else. I came across this disc and upon seeing the price, I thought it would be worth a listen. This is without a doubt one of the best bargains I have ever come across. The School for Scandal is solid and provides a nice appetizer for the incredible First Symphony. There were several occasions in the First Symphony that I was so speechless, I could do nothing else but laugh. The wild conclusion of the first movement ultimately ending with a swift plunge blew me away. The soloist in the last movement plays beautifully and the conclusion of the piece is plenty powerful. Tempo is perfect throughout, never too brisk of a pace, yet never lethargic. A perfect depth of sound and brilliant playing throughout make this symphony alone worth the price of the disc. The orchestra plays with such warmth, but the players can also take off their gloves and hit you across the face when the music calls for it. I simply can't say enough about this one.

While probably just tossed in as filler material, I was actually blown away by the beauty of the First Essay. This is one of the most underrated pieces I can think of, as I constantly find something new within its deep textures. I can't seem to understand why this is the least famous of Barber's set of Three Essays. I actually much prefer it to the other Essays and would love to see it rise in popularity to get the attention it deserves. It is some of the greatest string writing you will ever come across and the long, sorrowful melody will stick in your head for days. I can't imagine it being played any richer than you will hear on this disc... simply breathtaking.

While not as popular in comparison to the First Symphony, Barber's Second Symphony is also very intriguing. Alsop and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra also do a fine job with this symphony. The strings are wonderfully icy throughout many passages and the brass and the thunderous timpani in the finale of this symphony are also worth mentioning. In one particular instance, it sounds as if the guy gave up on his mallets and is hitting the timpani with a sequoia tree instead. And as many of you out there know, there are very few things in this world better to drive a piece of music home than the sound of powerful brass combined with an explosive timpani. While probably not as good as the First, the Second Symphony still is a great piece of music worthy of a good listening.

Simply stated, this is one of my favorite discs that I own and undoubtedly one of the best discs on the market under 10 bucks.

HASH(0x9ad1ed38) étoiles sur 5 Masterfully lush, like an ocean or thunderstorm 19 avril 2005
Par A. Drinkard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This disc is by far the most beloved of my collection. Nothing has ever pushed me to the brink of emotional explosion like the First Symphony has as it is played here. Absolutely gives me chills. The chaconne of the final movement (though the symphony is played as one large movement) is haunting. I only wish I could share it with everybody. Now, that having been said, you'll likely find The School for Scandal Overture to be a little more accessible. It too is fascinating. As are the Essay and the Second Symphony, which is particularly well played. For the price, this is an amazing treat. As others have mentioned, this disc really shows that Barber was much more than a one-hit-wonder (referring to his oft-played 'Adagio for Strings'). He can really pack a punch, so to speak. And that's all I have to say about that.

Since I do not have the formal musical training which would allow me to comment on the technical virtues of this performance, I can say, without regret, that this is your best bet for the price. The First Symphony is a lush, one movement masterpiece. The Second Symphony, sadly disowned by the composer, is also worthy of further performance. And the First Essay for Orchestra and the School for Scandal are more than worthy fillers. The sound quality matches Barber's music for lushness. The price is unbeatable. The performance of the First Symphony, at least, matches that of a full priced version performed by Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony and released on RCA. Romantic, elegant, emotional, and tasteful.

HASH(0x9ad271b0) étoiles sur 5 The Symphony No. 2 Makes This Release a Bargain 3 octobre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Having read the astute comments by the other reviewers listed on this page, I'm amused to learn we all have different objections to this recording, though in sum we find it recommendable. My gripe concerns The School for Scandal Overture. Alsop chooses an unfortunately leaden tempo for this mercurial work and proceeds with a leaden stick through most of it. Only at the end do the orchestra and she seem to perk up. The beginning seems especially tentative in phrasing.
That said, I find few negatives in the rest of the performances here. I also own the Zinman/Baltimore recording of the Symphony No. 1, and while I remember it is as being a fleet, commanding performance, Alsop's seems its equal. The first movement, given a dutiful Allegro ma non troppo tempo, does seem just a trifle sluggish in Alsop's reading, but the other movements are very well done.
Nothing earthbound about Alsop's performance of Symphony No. 2, which recreates the fear of flying our men in the air experienced during World War II. If you don't know this work (as I did not when I came to this recording), it is certainly worth hearing. It's a troubled and troubling symphony, its airborne gestures, especially in the first movement, being both scenically captivating and dramatic to a T. The lovely Andante brings the only repose in the form of long-breathed melodies with a glacial beauty, interrupted by an icy tumult at its core.
The symphony represents Barber's most forward-looking work, besides the Piano Concerto, so it is interesting to note that in the Second Symphony, which Barber tried to suppress from further peformance and publication, he uses one of the motives that shapes the later work. The third movement of the symphony starts with this restless motive, though Barber doesn't explore it as thoroughly as in the Piano Concerto; he isn't the first composer to recycle promising material. But the third movement of the symphony seems repetitious and static through much of its course, unlike the first two movements. The dramatic peroration caps the symphony admirably, but by then the material of the movement has outworn its welcome, at least for me. Maybe that's the chief reason Barber rejected the work: It had a recalcitrant movement that he couldn't or didn't want to whip into shape. But this is just speculation, and I'm very glad to have made the acquaintance of this thought-provoking work.
Alsop and company make a compelling case for it throughout, as they do for the much more familiar Essay for Orchestra No. 1. Both have all the drama one could wish for, and I have no quibbles here about tempos or phrasing.
The engineer for Naxos' British Isles-based recordings, Tony Faulkner, captures the orchestra in typically warm, full sound.

HASH(0x9ad278d0) étoiles sur 5 Well Play Performances of Barber Essentials 24 juin 2002
Par David A. Wend - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
This CD is a great introduction to the music of Samuel Barber and a great addition for someone who knows these wonderful orchestral works. The selection of works is nicely representative with a particularly good performance of the Second Symphony (Andrew Schenk would be proud). Marin Alsop, a protégé of Leonard Bernstein, and a conductor who has gained a lot of attention conduct the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. It would be nice to see her as music director of the Ravinnia Festival.
Along with the Second Symphony, the School for Scandal Overture is well played with a good tempo. The recording by Thomas Schippers remains my favorite but Ms. Alsop turns in a good, spirited performance (it reminds me more of Schenk's recording). The First Symphony and First Essay are beautifully played with the brooding drama and quicksilver lyricism of these works emphasized to good effect. The recording is very good all the details of the orchestration are clear. It is a joy to have this disc even though I already have these works played by other orchestras.
