The Adagio Connection


The term means “to go at a slow or easy pace” but always with a strong sense of movement that allows for its characteristic peaks and valleys of emotion. 

In the next hour some of the most familiar and recorded pieces of classical music — each of them marked by their composer with that word “Adagio.”
