I listen to this piece very rarely. It is reserved only for the most profound moments.

Bernstein and Barber were friends.  I don't think I've ever heard a more reverently nuanced performance of this adagio.

Samuel Barber has touched the Soul of Man with this composition.  It captures the depth of my heart's yearning for compassion, for healing, for understanding and for peace.  It is both sad and mournful and yet it is also uplifting - representative of the contradictory nature of MAN himself.  This is a masterpiece of music that I need to hear periodically to heal my heart and inspire my Soul.  Blessings to you Samuel Barber for your talent and gifts.
If only one thing survives our species/civilisation ... this should be it.
One of the greatest pieces (and use of silence) of music ever made.
