“A remarkable and compelling documentary that paints a revealing portrait of one of the 20th century’s greatest composers. Insightful and absorbing at every stage, H. Paul Moon leaves no stone unturned in his quest to bring to us, a greater understanding of this man of genius: one whose life began so charmed, but ended as sad and mournful as the Adagio that brought him such enviable success. Interspersed with a wealth of biographical material, contemporary and archival interviews and footage of Samuel Barber himself, this landmark film is the first to explore not only Barber the composer but also, and perhaps more importantly, Barber the man.”

Ian Venables, composer

“A great achievement by a filmmaker who possesses a deep knowledge of music, and is able to share it beautifully.  I sincerely hope that this work leads to more occasions to create music documentaries of this rare quality.”

Anders Hillborg, composer
