... programme éclectique très américain centré sur Barber, un des compositeurs fétiche de l'interprète, le regretté Thomas Schippers fauché par la maladie à 47 ans. On regrettera cette immense perte à l'audition de cet incomparable enregistrement qui mérite tous les éloges, tant de l'extraordinaire fluidité et dynamique de l'orchestre qui laisse entendre tous les instruments dans une grande clarté, que de la prise de son exemplaire des années 60 qui contribue aussi à cette spatialisation de chaque timbre instrumental dans une stéréo impeccable, très légère et aérée. Il y a du Fritz Reiner là-dedans. Version de référence - avec Bernstein - du célébrissime Adagio. Livret très intéressant en français.

HASH(0x92dfa558) étoiles sur 5 Best Adagio for Strings Recording 22 février 2000
Par I. R. Borgos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I personally own every recording released on Barber - well, all most every one. This by far is the most lucid, intense, and true to form version of The Adagio for Strings that is out there. It is not by chance however. This recording was done by Schippers under Barber's direct supervision. Thus, this is the way Barber wanted it to sound. Barber is said to have composed this piece after reading The Georgics, specifically a piece regarding the motion and flow of water. The beauty of this piece of music, especially this version which captures this fluidity, is in its perfect symmetry and simplicity. Like a Fibanocci Series, Barber's piece aescetically spirals in a beautiful set of notes which increasingly grow more intense with each new set. It as if Shippers has caught the feel of a trickle of water becoming a small stream, joining with more water and feeding into a river - then emptying into a delta and merging into the Ocean. One has to cry at the intensity as the peice comes to its climax and there emerges a profound stillness...like entering some private spiritual universe. I've never heard another peice of music that comes close except for Mozart's Don Giovanni.

HASH(0x92dfa5ac) étoiles sur 5 an extraordinary talent, gone but not forgotten 5 mars 2002
Par Alejandra Vernon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
May we never forget Thomas Schippers. One of the greatest of all American conductors, he graced this earth with his brilliance until 1977, when he died of lung cancer at the age of 47.
This CD, which contains recordings from the early to mid '60's, is a wonderful tribute to him.
He championed, and had a great affinity for the music of Samuel Barber, as this disc will prove. His performance of the gorgeous "Adagio for Strings" is sublime, and by far the best I've heard. I also love "Medea's Dance of Vengance" and "The School for Scandal" Overture. "Andromache's Farewell" features Martina Arroyo (early in her career, at age 27), and her powerful soprano is perfect for this piece.
On this CD one also gets a short and sprightly Gian Carlo Menotti overture, a terrific (also very short) Berg interlude, and the closing d'Indy composition is slow, peaceful, and dreamy.
The booklet has a fair amount of information, including a piece by Menotti, and photos of Schippers (as handsome as a movie star), and Barber.
The total time is 71:22 and the sound is excellent. This was a surprise gift for which I'm very grateful, and I'll be playing it often...now, and way into the future.

HASH(0x92dfa9e4) étoiles sur 5 Great Recording Conducted by Thomas Schippers 1 août 2001
Par David A. Wend - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Thomas Schippers was a talented conductor who died before his time in 1977. He helped found the Spoleto Festival with Gian Carlo Menoti and had a close affinity for the music of Samuel Barber (although they did not like each other much). Too few of Schippers' recordings have been transfered to CD, but some of his best are included on this disc. This is arguably the best recording of Medea's Dance of Vengence and particularly fine recordings of Barber's Adagio and School For Scandal Overture. If you have an interest in the music of Samuel Barber, you can't do better than the recordings presented here.

HASH(0x92dfadb0) étoiles sur 5 Probably the best "Adagio" you'll ever hear...... 9 juin 2002
Par DAVID A. FLETCHER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
All of the earlier reviewers have hit upon the magic of these performances by Schippers of much of Samuel Barber's most memorable music. It's almost become cliche...since Roosevelt's funeral, I suppose...to use the Barber "Adagio for Strings" as an old-reliable underpinning for cinematic sadness. What's not always easy, though, is to get beyond the sheer beauty of the string writing to the heart of the vocal quality that Barber imbues his best scores with; the lines have to breathe and truly "sing", as in Schubert's 8th, the "Unfinished." Schippers accomplished that with his reading of the Barber Adagio.
It's almost a reflex...no matter how many times I hear this disc, as soon as his forces are few bars into the opening, the tears start to roll. It's like hearing Schwarzkopf or Norman singing the Strauss "Four Last Songs," or Marriner's reading of the Vaughan Williams "Tallis Fantasia." Schippers just takes you THERE.
Like many of the other reviewers, I've lived with the Schippers Barber performances since the LP era. And yes, the balance of his body of recordings for CBS/Sony need to be reissued. Schippers' gift was a marriage of Bernstein-like emotion with a balanced tone not unlike Jochum playing Bruckner. Hard to pull off, yes, but, that was Schippers' gift.
With both Bernstein and Schippers in the old Columbia stable of artists, I doubt that he'd have had the chance to do his own Mahler cycle with them; that was Lenny's show. Not even George Szell managed to complete one. Schippers had the musical vision for it, though; had he lived, he just might have signed with another label and.....oh well. We can only just imagine.

HASH(0x92dfae94) étoiles sur 5 Perhaps definitive performances of Barber's works. The Adagio and School for Scandal are astonishing!!! 24 août 2014
Par Joseph Kline PhD, MD - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Samuel Barber is among the finest composers that America has ever produced, much less than one of the greatest of the 20th century. Even as a child, he knew that his destiny was musical composition. At 9 years of age, he wrote a letter to his mother and told her just that! By 14, he was enrolled in the newly-formed Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. His dream came true - for Barber and for us, as well. In this incredible Sony album, we have Thomas Schippers leading either the New York Philharmonic or Columbia Symphony in performances of Barber's Medea's Dance of Vengeance, Adagio for Strings, Second Essay for Orchestra, Overture to The School for Scandal, Andromache's Farewell, Intermezzo from Vanessa; Menotti's Overture to Amelia al ballo; Berg's Interlude from Wozzeck (Act III); and d'Indy's Introduction to Fervaal. The works by Barber are performed by the NYPO, while the remaining works are performed by the Columbia SO. All were recorded in the early 1960's and subsequently remastered.

To begin the Barber fest, we hear Media's Dance of Vengeance, a suite taken from the ballet music. The music depicts the themes of jealousy and revenge and begins quietly with strings, woodwinds, and percussion. But the quiet beauty of longing is only temporary, and in time it transitions to a broader, more sweeping, almost sultry treatment of the theme. The music next becomes agitated with even larger orchestral ideas including the use of piano. The catchy rhythms keep the music lively as it expands to near riotous tutti's. Finally, the piece concludes with anguished passages before the agitation makes one last heroic statement.

Little needs to be said of the Adagio for Strings, Barber's adaptation of an early string quartet movement for string orchestra. Here, it receives one of the most emotional and endearing performances that I have ever heard. The music has been said to be authentic. William Schuman stated that there is no apparent compositional technique. It is just effortless and natural. Few listeners have not been moved by its timeless beauty. Its seemingly longing mood accounts for it having been called America's national funeral music.

The Second Essay for Orchestra is not my favorite Barber piece, but it receives a superb performance by Schippers/NYPO. Ever since I heard the Overture for the School for Scandal, I have been taken by its propulsive rhythms and melodic motifs, and what an exciting performance it receives. When the pensive theme finally arrives, it induces a deep calm to all who hear it. It is certainly one of the finest themes of the 20th century. The recapitulation of the original agitated introduction is simply glorious, especially the restatement of the timeless theme.

I was unfamiliar with Andromache's Farewell, but while interesting, it isn't one of Barber's best works IMHO. It is a work for soprano and orchestra with the text from The Tro¬jan Women by Euripi¬des. In contrast, the Intermezzo from Vanessa (Act III) is a lovely piece with the oboe taking a prominent role. The final three works, played by the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, begin with Menotti's Overture to Amelia al ballo, a lively and beautiful work full of energy and good humor. The conclusion is pure joy. Next is Berg's Interlude from Wozzeck (Act III). This is a mournful work that turns to anguish. The conclusion with brass fades to darkness. The final work is d'Indy's Introduction to Fervaal. It, also, is rather melancholic but the melancholy of love, not sadness. Its theme is rich and beautiful.

Throughout this album, I was struck by how splendid was the sound. These are 50 year old recordings. Columbia took care of their master tapes. There are absolutely no criticisms possible with the sound, including soundstage and center fill. Okay, maybe the soundstage is a tad shallow, but everything else is superb. The orchestras under Thomas Schippers also deserve much praise. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
