My God I love this piece!
It's so beautifully sad but simultaneous l y offering hope from the pits of despair.

Sounds like they used a part (probably the beginning part) in HIMYM the episode of the slap of a thousand suns you know right before Barney got slapped.

Sounds distinctly like the track in Harry Potter at the end of 5 when Voldemort speaks through Harry...

This piece of music was written by Samuel Barber, an American composer. It was played at JFK's memorial and it was used in the movie Platoon. Barber's version is many times richer and more beautiful. It was also recently transcribed for voice and it is incredible as well. This Escala version is ok, but nothing like hearing it played by a symphony. At least this version lets Pandora listeners learn about this music. I just wish Pandora would give credit where credit is due!!

Its a fairly popular orchestral piece originally by Samuel Barber, that has been in many TV shows and movies. The one that comes to my mind is Oliver Stone's Platoon.

Sounds like it should be on a film score.
