Major Works:

Adagio for Strings, op. 11 Opera Vanessa Scene for Soprano and Orchestra Knoxville: Summer of 1915 Other Information: Samuel Barber was born on 9 March 1910 in West Chester, Pennsylvania. He already played piano at age 6, and wrote his first piece at age 7. When he was 10 years old he tried to write an opera, but never finished it. At 14 he began his studies at Curtis Institute. There he studied composition (1926-31), piano (1926-31) and singing (1926-30). Barber had a beautiful baritone voice and, for some time, he wanted to be singer. During his studies at Curtis Institute, Barber wrote his first piece: Serenade for strings

M usic-making was always a part of Samuel Barber's life, from his earliest years. The nephew of contralto Louise Homer and her husband, the prolific song writer Sidney Homer , Barber had announced his vocation in a note written to his mother at the age of nine:
"I was meant to be a composer and will be I'm sure...Don't ask me to try to forget this unpleasant thing and go play footballplease." Samuel Osborne Barber II was born March 9, 1910, in West Chester, PA, the son of a prominent doctor. Young Sam studied piano at six, began composing at seven, served as a church organist while still in his teens, and developed his attractive baritone voice to the point where he entertained the thought of becoming a professional singer. Enrolled in the newly-founded Curtis Institute at fourteen, Barber studied piano with Isabelle Vengerova, composition with Rosario Scalero, singing with Emilio de Gogorza, and conducting with Fritz Reiner and formed a life-long friendship with Giancarlo Menotti, whom he met in 1928 in Philadelphia. Two years of training in Italy after winning the 1935 Prix de Rome and numerous European jaunts helped the emerging composer to shake off the conservative influences of Homer and Scalero and shape his own distinctive musical language. Barber composed a wide range of stage, orchestral, chamber, piano, choral, and vocal works in what he unassumingly insisted was a personal style "born of what I feel..I am not a self-conscious composer." His discipline and use of traditional forms earned him the reputation of a classicist. Virgil Thomson once wrote that Barber was laying to rest the ghost of Romanticism without violence, though in light of the composer's lush lyricism, deft dramatic sense, and inclination toward Romantic poetic sources (especially in his vocal writing), this comment ultimately proved to be off-mark. Throughout his catalogue of works, Barber adhered stubbornly to his own inner voicea voice rich in subtlety and sumptuousness that relied deeply on melody, polyphony, and complex musical texturesall fused with an unerring instinct for graceful proportion and an unabashed affinity for Romantic thought and emotion.

    Barber was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania , the son of Marguerite McLeod ( née Beatty) and Samuel LeRoy Barber. At a very early age, Barber became profoundly interested in music, and it was apparent that he had great musical talent and ability. At the age of nine he wrote to his mother: Dear Mother: I have written to tell you my worrying secret. Now don’t cry when you read it because it is neither yours nor my fault. I suppose I will have to tell it now, without any nonsense. To begin with I was not meant to be an athlete. I was meant to be a composer, and will be I’m sure. I’ll ask you one more thing .—Don’t ask me to try to forget this unpleasant thing and go play football.—Please—Sometimes I’ve been worrying about this so much that it makes me mad (not very).

Samuel Barber
American composer Samuel Barber often confuses critics. He founded no school; he stuck to no one style. As a public figure, he seemed aloof from the various critical fights of American music: tonal vs. atonal, Igor Stravinsky vs. Arnold Schoenberg Aaron Copland Roy Harris Walter Piston ... Roger Sessions , and Milton Babbitt Barber distinguished himself as a melodist. Almost everything he wrote has at least one gorgeous tune or memorable theme. This alone got him into trouble in certain circles as a stick-in-the-mud or even as a panderer to the vulgar. However, his gift also genuinely puzzled people. There is nothing in a Barber piece that instantly proclaims the composer, as a Copland, Ralph Vaughan Williams , or Sergei Prokofieff work surely does. His melodic emphasis led certain critics to label him "neo-Romantic," a word that doesn't mean all that much. Almost nothing he wrote could have been produced in the Romantic era. The harmonies are too complex and sometimes extremely dissonant, the approach to form is as modern as

Violin Concerto (1939). Samuel Barber /aesthetics of the gods/
Omniscient Mussel points to an article about war horse concertos and their enduring popularity. The interviewees suggest some fresher violin concerto alternatives by Andre Previn, John Adams, Philip Glass, John Corigliano, William Bolcom and Christopher Rouse. But then Leonidas Kavakos makes this comment: But I'm not sure music ever transcends aesthetics, in the Wikipedia definition as "critical reflection on art, culture and nature." Maybe a better way to say it is that I don't believe the reception of music is ever aesthetics-free. For that matter, I don't believe in composers-of-the-gods, nor even works-of-the-gods, notwithstanding. All of which is a good lead-in to a quote from Michael Kimmelman in his New York Review of Books round-up of Richard Taruskin On Russian Music and The Danger of Music and Other Anti-Utopian Essays Hanging judge may be more like it than Old Testament prophet, and by the way, he [Taruskin] lets the scribblers off too easily. His books locate much of the blame for the debased role high art has come to play in society at the feet of precisely those who try to shield culture from the hurly-burly of real life and debate. Art suffocates in thin air. Angry and prejudiced to the point of outrage, Taruskin wrestles it back to earth, where we live and die.
