Adagio for Strings: Simply breathtaking beauty

cowboomie

The Serenade for Strings is one of the most beautiful pieces ever written for the violin and accompanying strings. I saw it performed by the San Luis Obispo Symphony and was moved almost to tears. What stunning beauty. To learn that Samuel Barber only ever wrote one piece for strings, was an amazing discovery. But perhaps, he exorcised every nuance of the beauty he heard in his mind in this work. It would stand to reason, as it is an extraordinary work.

Barber Violin Concerto

I always thought of Samuel Barber as a one hit wonder, although what a hit, the adagio for strings is one of the most powerful contemplative pieces that I have ever heard. Now it begins to occur to me that this man had more emotional breadth than just the adagio. I think for sheer dripping, unadulterated beauty this concerto holds up well against even the great ones. I cannot keep from playing this!
