Performer: Martina Arroyo. Orchestra: Columbia Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic. Conductor: Thomas Schippers. Composer: Samuel Barber, Alban Berg, Vincent d' Indy, Gian Carlo Menotti. 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.

Stern and Bernstein - Barber’s best enemy – give an extremely melancholic and idiomatic reading of the Violin Concerto. His new album Souvenirs & Recollections includes no less than seven world premiere recordings of works composed between the age of 13 and 15. Especially interesting are the moving Andante religioso and Petite Berceuse, finely written, a Prelude to a Tragic Drama emphatic but never hollow, and the three Essays composed in 1926.
Thomas Schippers (9 March 1930 – 16 December 1977) was an American conductor. He was highly regarded for his work in opera. He conducted world premieres of now well-known music by Gian Carlo Menotti and Samuel Barber. He conducted child actor Chet Allen in a theatrical version of Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors. Schippers was a regular conductor with the New York Philharmonic and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and made recordings with them as well, but in 1970 he finally took a full-time orchestral position with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, succeeding his predecessor at the Metropolitan Opera, Max Rudolf. After making several recordings with them and building the orchestra's international reputation, his career was cut short by his death from lung cancer at 47 in 1977 in New York City, New York.
