Vanessa by Samuel Barber( )

106 editions published between 1957 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This broadcast, recorded just two weeks after Vanessa's Met world premiere, presents the original cast in spectacular form. Eleanor Steber is marvelous as the title heroine, a beautiful woman awaiting the return of her long-lost lover. But the man who arrives is his son, Anatol (a suave Nicolai Gedda). The handsome youth plays a dangerous emotional game of wooing both Vanessa and her niece Erika (an enchanting Rosalind Elias)--with devastating consequences. Regina Resnik stars as the Old Baroness and Giorgio Tozzi is the kind Doctor. Conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos gives an impassioned reading of Barber's superb score

This broadcast captures the gala performance that opened the new Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center, with the world premiere of Samuel Barber's last opera. Based on Shakespeare's play, adapted as a libretto by director Franco Zeffirelli, it stars the great Leontyne Price as the legendary Queen of Egypt, opposite Justino Díaz as her lover, the Roman general Antony, and Jess Thomas as Caesar, who defeats him. Rosalind Elias is Cleopatra's servant, Charmian, and Ezio Flagello sings Enobarbus, Antony's lieutenant. Thomas Schippers conducts the Met's vast musical forces

15 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recopilación de registros anteriores que reúnen en una sola caja un buen surtido de la música del estadounidense Samuel Barber, uno de esos "artistas de una sola obra", cuyo brillo del Adagio para cuerdas ha ensombrecido otras obras muy valiosas. Como corolarios del Adagio, y continuando su estética contemplativa, surgen los tres Ensayos para orquesta. Más autonomía e interés tiene el Concierto para violín, pieza virtuosa al estilo decimonónico. Hay mucho lirismo en sus dos primeros movimientos, que Elmar Oliveira explota con sabiduría y musicalidad. La versión de Slatkin de las obras orquestales es minuciosa y original. El Adagio suena lentísimo, que es lo suyo, la curva de tensión asciende con suavidad y alcanza el clímax con notable precisión. Muy bien la Sinfónica de Saint Louis
