Song of the Week

February 2, 2017

This weeks song of the week is Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, Op. 11. The piece begins quietly, then builds in intensity and complexity to an almost overwhelming feeling of sublime involvement, only to subside and build again. I love not only listening to it, but watching this performer. Amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfcZheDtUXc
