Composer: Barber, Samuel
Sample Producer: Voxus Virtual Organs
Sample Set: Stahlhuth/Jann - Dudelange
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Modern
The Stahlhuth/Jahn organ in Dudelange has as impressive collection of string stops. The complete Gamba chorus (from 16' to 2') on the positiv gave me the idea to play Barber's famous Adagio. I recorded it begin july but did not post it, because I wanted to finish my Kauffmann series first.
Since then Aida posted two impressive versions of this piece, so I'm a bit hesitant to post this one as well. Well, here it is anyway. The fff-part is (of course) on the complete gamba-section of the positive.
I made the transcription myself. Barber's music is still under copyright, so I can't publish the score.
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
