[This book] combines extreme simplicity of form with complex and mysterious meanings ... In literary terms, [the author] conceived the [book] in a popular genre of illustrated children's books and hymnals, which had a highly conventional eighteenth-century tradition behind it ... Part One largely conforms to the tradition, set in a sunlit, pastoral world of nursery, garden and village-green. Its central ideas are those of joy, comfort, tenderness and parental or divine security; though not exclusively so. Part Two largely subverts the traditions, set in a darker, more dreamlike version of the same landscape with nightmare intimations, glimpses of forests and shadowy city streets, a sense of twilight and nightfall, and menacing animal and insect shapes. Here the central ideas are those of anger, jealousy, anxiety, cruelty, injustice, and an overwhelming protest against the unhappiness in the world. Though again, not exclusively or hopelessly so.-Introd

13 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 559 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
