Samuel Barber (1910 - 81): Composer, Pianist, and Baritone!

One of adult students, currently preparing for an ARSM diploma, recently introduced me to Samuel Barber's op.3 'Dover Beach' for Baritone and String Quartet. The American composer is best known for his 'Adagio for strings' and the song 'Sure on this Shining Night'. Complete news to me, however, is the fact that, as well as being a composer and pianist, he was also a trained Baritone. He even recorded 'Dover Beach' himself, with the Curtis String Quartet in !935!
