The incomparable Cho Liang Lin brings one of Barber’s most romantic works warmly to life. Written three years after his famous Adagio for strings, it amply demonstrates Barber’s lyrical gifts.
Wagner’s masterpiece Tristan and Isolde appears in a fascinating new guise in de Vlieger’s arrangement. In seven linked excerpts, the Dutch composer has stripped away the opera’s inessentials to focus on the doomed lovers’ hearts and minds, with the great second act duet as its core.
