Barber Canzone for Flute and Piano

This is an arrangement from the 2nd mvt of Barber’s Piano Concerto Opus 38a for flute and piano.

Samuel Barber

Barber was born in 1910 in Pennsylvania and began composing his first piece around the age of 7 followed by an opera aged ten.  At the tender age of 14, he won a place at the Curtis Institute studying voice, piano, and composition and later studied conducting with Fritz Reiner.

With a prolific career spanning the 20th century, Barber’s works encompassed various genres, including orchestral, chamber, choral, and vocal music. His renowned compositions include the exquisite “Adagio for Strings,” the powerful “Violin Concerto,” and the hauntingly beautiful “Knoxville: Summer of 1915.” Barber’s music is characterized by its rich harmonies, lyrical melodies, and profound emotional expression. His contributions to American classical music earned him numerous accolades, including two Pulitzer Prizes.
