Barber - String Quartet, Serenade, Dover Beach & Songs

Thomas Allen & Roger Vignoles, with Eric Cutler, Bradley Moore

Endellion String Quartet

Mostly a wide-ranging choice of Barber's songs, intense and rather Brittenish in idiom, but polished and often warm-hearted, plus his String Quartet, source of the famous Adagio.
