Program Notes

Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings is clearly the genesis of the original idea, as the connections are too specific to be ignored. The composer's notes identify the work as an expansion on incidental music written for an off—Broadway play, but the dedication to Samuel Barber implies the source of the material in the incidental music. The key signatures, melodic structure and scoring procedure are all three inextricably linked to the Adagio for Strings. While some differences exist in the overall shape of the Elegy as compared to the Adagio, the basic architecture of the two works, both of which begin and end with quiet passages, are similar.
