- Barber, Samuel
Capricorn Concerto for Flute, Oboe, Trumpet, and Strings, Op. 21.
G. Schirmer, New York, 1945, Wraps, , , Good
35 pp. Full score. Spine reinforced with library tape, wear at extremities. ''In the concerto--the string section represents the house proper, while the solo flute oboe and trumpet represents the two wings and the guest room, or, in that order, Barber, Menotti, and Horan.''--Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, 1947. Lou Harrison--''The charming combinations he achieves with the wind concertino are very telling indeed and produce a bubbling opalescence. . . . Barber has tremendous technical grasp and an essential urge to expression.''
