There's something about songs in a minor key that I just love. This piece is certainly no exception. Like mudnrox said, Adagio For Strings is a beautifully haunting piece.

Surprising how many folks think this piece is from some movie. No it isn't. This fantastic music was written and is performed to touch our souls as it is, by itself, standing alone. Yes, it has been used by people making movies. But, written in 1936 it precedes them.

One of my favorite pieces of all time. Such a beautifully haunting melody, yet filled with hope. Barber composed this piece for the ages that will live forever.

Absolutely one of the best movie theme...make s me tear up every time.

Wonderful piece, albeit a bit fast for how it was intended to be played, (that being almost half this tempo). I've heard some ranging beyond ten minutes for this.

Is this from a movie? What one?

If you like this piece and you've not seen the movie 'Platoon' you should. Paired with the scene of a falling hero in a tragically flawed world it is simply perfect in its abject despair.

Is this a remix of Tiestos song? :P jk
