The Lovers - La Jolla Symphony & Chorus

Arnold Schoenberg's tone poem "Verklärte Nacht" ("Transfigured Night") is the composer's interpretation of a German romantic poem. In "The Lovers," American neo-Romantic composer Samuel Barber sets poems by Pablo Neruda for baritone, mixed chorus, and full orchestra. Recorded on 6/11/2017. (#31846)
