About this album:
In today’s hectic world, it is increasingly important to relax and take time out for yourself. This special collection of beautiful and serene adagios will help you do just that. The set features over two hours of soothing music, including many slow movements that are at the emotional core of timeless and best‐loved masterpieces.
You’ll be captivated by the variety of wonderful and instantly recognizable melodies heard here: the wistful spiritual from Dvořák’s ‘New World’ Symphony, the exquisite interweaving lines of Bach’s ‘Air on a G String’, and some of Mozart’s most impressive showcases for how to really make an instrument sing in the Clarinet Concerto and ‘Elvira Madigan’ Piano Concerto. And evocative and atmospheric adagios – such as Grieg’s ‘Morning’ and the slow movement from Beethoven’s ‘Pastoral’ Symphony with its distinctive birdsong calls in the flute, oboe and clarinet – will transport you to another world, far away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Other highlights include some of the most enchanting slow movements in the piano repertoire – such as the poignant Adagio cantabile from Beethoven’s ‘Pathétique’ Sonata and stunning concerto movements by Chopin, Ravel and Rachmaninoff – Fauré’s intense Élégie for cello, and Mahler’s tender and heartbreakingly romantic Adagietto. The emotional power of these adagios is brought to the fore by first‐rate orchestras such as the Staatskapelle Dresden, Philharmonia and Royal Philharmonic, under the baton of eminent conductors such as Theodore Kuchar, Herbert Blomstedt and Rudolf Barshai.
A moment to relax, to withdraw from an increasingly hectic life, overfed with stimuli from work, society obligations and social networks: this music will calm down your jittery nerves, and will take you on slow waves of soothing melodies to a world of pure sound and tranquillity. A generous selection of the most famous slow movements: Air (Bach), Adagio (Marcello), Adagio (Rachmaninoff 2nd piano concerto), Scene at the Brook (Beethoven’s Pastorale), The Adagietto from the movie ‘Death in Venice’ (Mahler) and many more.

Excellent performances by Staatskapelle Dresden, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra and soloists Klára Würtz and Misha Goldstein.

in Les Misérables for no apparent reason Victor Hugo describes in great detail, a man who fell off a ship in the night into a dark ocean . . and ever so slowly drowns - i was reading this while drifting off to sleep late at night, made me feel most uncomfortable . . the image here so reminds me of that

If all world governments dedicated themselves, to the arts including music, dance, sculpture, painting, and so on w`d have a better world, since people who play, sing, dance, and paint, are happier and more productive, which would lead to general sustained, and sustainable development BLESSINGS!

May I suggest the addition of Albinoni's Adagio and Barber's Adagio for Strings to this already beautiful compilation?

Os adágios são como pausas nas tropelias sinfônicas, um repentino olhar de contemplação na paisagem da vibrante orquestração. Poderíamos dizer uma frenagem recreativa, como o andar menos cadenciado de uma célere caminhada -- talvez um recreio suavizante, enternecedor. A beleza dos adágios envolve a poesia meditativa -- encanto e sintonia com a paz.
