Reviews For Barber's Adagio and other Romantic Favorites for Strings By Artist Leonard Bernstein & New York Philharmonic

  • Adagio for Strings is beautiful

    By AlonzoJAdams
    Adagio for Strings is the most beautiful music ever composed. I feel every emotion while listening to this wonderful work of art. A must for every library.
  • 'Adagio' out of tune? Are you crazy?

    This isn't out of tune. They're called dissonances...not intonation issues. There is absolutely nothing 'pitchy' about this performance. It's flawless. And, while I'm on here, let me say that nobody conducts 'Adagio' like Bernstein.
  • Maybe he should tune first next time...

    Selections on this CD are quite lovely. The reason I bought this CD though was for the Adagio, which is not very lovely at all. The tempo is very slow, which would be very nice, except for the fact that the entire piece is just sooo out of tune. It just sort of spoils it. I highly recommend the Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

    An incredible work of art! Barber's Adagio for Strings, when paired with the Adagietto from Symphony No. 5, make for the most moving and uplifting 20 minutes of music I have ever heard.

    By wise critic
    Bernstein truly executes this preformance well. In comparison to other renditions of this timeless piece, this one is my favorite. I like how he takes his time with all of the different segments of this peice, not rushing, but giving the perfect length of time to preform each note, carefully and beautifully. I was surprised to find out it was not the top on the list of "adagios," but was even topped by a techno song that is good but not nearly as amazing as this recording. Though it will seem long with 9:56, if you sit back in a quiet place, and just listen, I promise you will be blown away.
  • Barber is a Genius!

    Adagio for strings is one of the most transcendent and beautiful songs ever composed- it contains every possible emotion, and is simply amazing. All of Barber's works are gorgeous and modern- this album does a wonderful job of capturing the beauty of Barber. This is the New York Phil at its best!

    Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

    Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
