Tuesday, September 11, 2001 started as just another beautiful day. At 8:47am, the city would be jolted into its worst nightmare as a chain of tragic events unfolded, changing the lives of New Yorkers and Americans forever. People from 115 different countries died at the World Trade Center.

Adagio for strings, violin concerto, orchestral & chamber works by Samuel Barber( )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 569 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

Conducting business : unveiling the mystery behind the maestro by Leonard Slatkin( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conducting an orchestra is something that is seen as well as heard, but it is quite misunderstood. People may wonder, "What does this person actually do for a living?" This most mysterious of jobs is brought to life in this book. Drawing on his own experiences on and off the podium, Leonard Slatkin tells tales of some of the most fascinating people in the musical world, including Frank Sinatra, Leonard Bernstein, and John Williams. He takes the reader to soundstages in Hollywood as well as great concert halls and opera pits around the globe. Slatkin recounts his controversial appearance at the Metropolitan Opera, his creation and direction of summer music festivals, and a shattering concert experience that took place four days after 9/11. Discussions of work in the recording studio and life on the road as well as health issues confronting the conductor provide an insider's glimpse into this private world
