CELLO Quartet
incl. substitute part 1 C - tenor clef

Adagio for Strings is a work by Samuel Barber, arguably his best known, arranged for string orchestra from the second movement of his String Quartet, Op. 11.

Barber finished the arrangement in 1936, the same year that he wrote the quartet. Its reception was generally positive, with Alexander J. Morin writing that Adagio for Strings is "full of pathos and cathartic passion" and that it "rarely leaves a dry eye.

This excerpt respects the integrity of the main music motive. This arrangement can be enjoyed by CELLO players.
