Reviews
A dream coupling: Barber's concertos for violin (sweetly lyrical) and cello (bristlingly virtuosic), plus his Capricorn Concerto (dryly witty), all performed to near perfection by Kyoko Takezawa, Steven Isserlis, Leonard Slatkin and the St. Louis Symphony.
Terry Teachout, New York Daily News,1/1/0001
