YOU, THE LISTENER, DECIDE IF THIS PIECE IS SUFFICIENTLY SAD. I submitted it to the 2007 Adagio Composition Contest of the Fauxharmonic Orchestra, but, alas, it did not even make it to a honorific mention much less become one of the three finalists among 166 entries received, of which nearly all were impressive works that deserve to be recognized. The challenge was: Who will be the next Master of Melancholy? Has anyone composed an adagio for string orchestra that can rival Samuel Barber�s in sadness? Piotr Szewczyk, for example, who lives in my area, in Miami Beach, Florida, got a honorific mention with his composition �The Angels of Solace.� His was one of the twenty pieces that stood out in particular for its outstanding quality and emotional power.
