Five StarsReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 March 2016
Gorgeous!!Reviewed in the United States on 28 August 2018
Barber’s Adagio for Strings is mesmerizing and gorgeous and ecstatic and melancholic and just downright beautiful. I love it and play it often. I might never have “met” this piece of wonderful music but by the accident of staying up really late one night. It was the late 50s, my late teenage years, and my girl friends and I were on our way home. We were on Chicago’s Outer Drive heading north and toward home after attending a concert. It was after midnight dark and absolutely pouring down rain and the windshield wipers were going like crazy. Suddenly this beautiful music began playing on the radio and it was such an utterly perfect accompaniment for those moments in the rain. Thankfully the radio announcer named it for us, Barber’s Adagio for Strings, and I’ve never forgotten it and that indelibly perfect moment. It was one of the first LPs I ever bought and this CD with Leonard Bernstein is my favorite of several. The Schumann is wonderful too.

What More Do You Have to Know Than the List of Contributing Artists?Reviewed in the United States on 28 June 2019
Leonard Bernstein (He conducts the New York Philharmonic on all nine cuts.), Isaac Stern, etc. You won't be disappointed if you add this CD to your collection. I certainly wasn't.

Barber: Adagio for stringsReviewed in the United States on 17 September 2019
I'm not "into" this style classical music. But? The Adagio for string, reminds me of the background music, of WWII News series and movies, showing information of the Halocaust! It's sad, this had happened. And the music really brings this sadness out!
