Featuring a brand-new recording of Barber's Violin Concerto, this disc encapsulates the composer's lyrical and moving style in works for both orchestra and choir. The Violin Concerto ranges from the colourful orchestral-writing and sonorous lyricism of the first two movements to the unconventional harmony of the finale, the orchestra supporting the soaring melodies and striking virtuosity of the solo instrument.

The Piano Concerto, for which Barber won the Pulitzer Prize, also makes great use of the soloist's virtuosity, and features a distinctive 5/8 time finale full of rhythmic drive. Made famous by Toscanini, the Adagio for Strings is full of rich chordings, at once liturgical in sound and ecstatically lyrical in its slowly-built climax.

Barber showed an early facility for vocal writing, and this disc includes several powerful instances of his choral works. In Heaven-haven the music's tenderness springs from the luminously-spaced harmony, which allows delicate chromatics to intrude without destroying the work's modal austerity. The finest of Barber's original a cappella pieces is the setting of Gerard Manley Hopkins's poem God's Grandeur, full of radiant intensity and performed with great sensitivity by the Joyful Company of Singers, hailed in 1994 as "Choir of the World".
