Marin Alsop and cohorts prove sympathetic to Barbers' brand of neoromantic lyricism, Karina Gauvin lifts "Knoxville, Summer of 1915" to new heights of ecstasy, The RNSO prove their mettle on the two "Essays for Orchestra", but it is with the rarely performed "Toccata Festiva" for organ and orchestra, that all the forces come together, Thomas Trotter pulls out all the stops in the solo part, especially in the cadenza using only the pedals, a feat of superhuman virtuosity in and of itself.
