Album Review

Reviewed 2015-03-29 
Samuel Barber’s (1910-1981) Violin Concerto is the most popular American concerto for the instrument. In the 1st mvmt a simple lyrical melody expands until joined by a 2nd, which swings. The 2nd mvmt opens with a lengthy, famous oboe solo; the violin sounds a recitative. The 3rd mvmt is a tour de force perpetual motion with relentless energy. Barber mentored John Corigliano (b. 1938), winner of a Pulitzer Prize, an Academy Award and a Grammy. Corigliano’s soothing Lullaby for Natalie was written for Ms. Meyer’s first child. Mason Bates (b. 1977), a leading Corigliano student, and one of his generation’s most frequently performed composers, writes that the violin in his concerto “inhabits two identities: one primal and rhythmic, the other elegant and lyrical.” The 1st mvmt is “explosive,” the 2nd dreamy and eerie, the 3rd “inspired equally by Bach inventions and sparkling electronica.” Ms. Myers is celebrated around the world, performing on concert stages, TV and radio, and is a best-selling artist with 30 albums.
