Composer. Wrote and scored symphonies, concerti, operas, chamber works, choral works and songs, winning two Pulitzer Prizes in the process. His most famous work is the "Adagio for Strings". Barber's will provided for a burial plot next to his own, reserved for composer and librettist Gian Carlo Menotti, Barber's partner for most of his adult life. Further, the will said that if Menotti chose not to be buried in Oaklands Cemetery (he is buried near his last home in Scotland), a stone should be placed on the empty plot and inscribed with the words "To The Memory Of Two Friends."
