Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber from String Quartet, Op.11 transcribed here for Saxophone Quintet by Kenneth Abeling. Arguably one of Samuel Barber’s best-known works, this piece has been used in several Movies and TV Shows, perhaps most notably the 1986 Academy Award Winning movie “Platoon”. This beautiful but mournful piece is suitable for general performance, Worship Services, Funerals or other sad and reflective events. While not technically difficult, it is emotionally exhaustive to play. Playing Time 6:10.
