Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Elizabeth Joy Roe makes her Decca recording debut with an album featuring two of the 20th century’s greatest composers: Britten and Barber. The critically-acclaimed pianist’s album couples both composers' piano concertos with solo nocturnes. This recording marks the first time Decca has recorded the Barber concerto, and the first time Decca returns to the Britten since the landmark 1970 recording with Sviatoslav Richter under the composer’s direction.
