Barber - Adagio for Strings

This is arguably Barber’s most well known, arranged for string orchestra from the second movement of his String Quartet, Op. 11. Barber finished the arrangement in 1936, the same year that he wrote the quartet. Alexander J. Morin wrote that Adagio for Strings is “full of pathos and cathartic passion” and that it “rarely leaves a dry eye.”

Performed by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra lead by Leonard Bernstein. Recorded on January 12, 1971.

"People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for."

— Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird (via quotes-shape-us)
