Notes and Editorial Reviews

Barber’s Concerto has become a rite of passage for young American violinists, with recordings by Buswell, McDuffie, Bell, Shaham, and Hahn, plus the classics by Stern with Bernstein and Perlman with Ozawa. Oliveira and Slatkin match the best of them, and the warm acoustic of Saint Louis’s Powell Hall is just what the piece needs.

– James H. North, Fanfare, reviewing a later reissue of the Barber Violin Concerto recording
