    Samuel Barber remains one of America’s most eminent composers, best known for his chamber work, Adagio for Strings. He composed large and small-scale works for piano, voice and piano, chorus, and orchestra, as well as three operas. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Barber's compositional style remained decidedly tonal. The collection is comprised of correspondence, music from Barber's personal library, printed music, writings, photographs, awards, programs, and items that belonged to Valentin Herranz, his companion from 1970 until Barber's death in 1981.
