Samuel Barber was born at West Chester, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., on March 9, 1910. He began the study of music at six years of age, and at seven was already composing. When he was thirteen he entered the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he studied composition with Rosario Scalero. In 1935 he was awarded the Prix de Rome and the Pulitzer Prize.
Among his numerous compositions for orchestra, one of his latest is the Essay, which was first performed in 1938 by the NBC Orchestra at New York under
Vaughan Williams's Symphony
No. 4, in F minor, which was first performed in April, 1935, at a BBC Symphony Concert, has no programme as in the case of the composer's previous symphonies. It is, as Frank Howes recently pointed out, ' in F minor', and therefore ' any other meaning it may have should not be hard for the listener to discover, for it is as direct as the rest of Vaughan Williams 's larger works and a good deal more forceful than most of them.'
