Classical | APE | WinRar 300mb
by the American composer John Adams, was the composer's first commissioned work during his tenure as Composer-in-Residence to the San Francisco Symphony from 1979 to 1985. The piece is a set to the texts of three poems, one by John Donne (Negative Love) and two by Emily Dickinson (Because I Could Not Stop For Love and Wild Nights).
Rachmaninoff's choral symphony, The Bells
, is based on a Russian version of Edgar Allan Poe's poem by that title. The Russian version, written by symbolist poet Konstantin Balmont, is slightly shorter than Poe's original, and ends in a somewhat more peaceful, sentimental fashion.
