Deep personal resonances and a profound love for the music of two of the 20th century's greatest composers connect Elizabeth Joy Roe to the works on her Decca debut album. The critically acclaimed American pianist's new album offers the unique coupling of piano concertos by Benjamin Britten and Samuel Barber, among the finest keyboard concertos of the 20th century. In both works, Roe is joined by the London Symphony Orchestra and the Bulgarian conductor and composer Emil Tabakov. The concertos are presented in company with Britten's Night Piece "Notturno" and Barber's Nocturne "Homage to John Field". Barber's Pulitzer Prize-winning concerto, famed for its fiendish technical demands and neo-Romantic lyricism, enters the Decca catalog for the first time; Roe's account of the Britten Piano Concerto, meanwhile, marks Decca's first return to the score since it was recorded by Sviatoslav Richter under the composer's direction in 1970.
