Barbara Harbach: Orchestral Music II. London Philharmonic Orchestra / David Angus. © 2014 MSR Classics

This second MSR Classics recording of Barbara Harbach's orchestral music follows an earlier programme played by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra with conductor Kirk Trevor (MS 1252).

The present release has three concise 3-movement symphonies and Harbach's atmospheric Night Soundings for Orchestra lasting fifteen-and-a-half minutes. The London Philharmonic Orchestra is directed by Boston Lyric Opera conductor David Angus, and illustrates Harbach's soundly constructed tonal style.

Composer, harpsichordist, organist and teacher, Harbach is Professor of Music at the University of Missouri-St Louis...
