Having purchased all the Adagio releases in Decca's long-running series, I can hand on heart say that Romantic Adagios I and II are together excellent buys if you want to ensemble all the best romantic classical adagios on to 4 discs. The content and sound quality of both is superb though personally I prefer Romantic Adagios II. The pieces on Romantic Adagios I are all very well known to the listener; there are two tracks in particular that tend to grate on you since they were used to death on TV (Onedin LIne theme and Hovis advert) which I think rather spoils the album. However, if you do just want the most 'famous' tracks the first set is definitely the one to buy. The less familiar tracks on Romantic Adagios II are all still very beautiful. Personally I feel that Romantic Adagios II stands up better as an album in its own right than its predecessor - it justs hangs together better. One of Decca's finest. Very highly recommended.

This 2 CD box set was released by Decca in 2003 several years after the release of the romantic adagios 1(1999). To my mind it showed that 2 discs were not enough to cover all the music that could be considered romantic. In these 2 discs set Decca have included more of the popular romantic classics and the array of composers range from Baroque to classical to the romantic and the 20th century era. This wide spectrum of selection makes this widely appealing. The composers whose works were included here are Bach, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Beethoven, Puccini, Bizet, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Wagner, Elgar, Liszt, Debussy, Grieg and Vaughn Williams.
There is no tract repeated from the 1999 release rather both volumes contain uniquely some of the great and popular works of these composers.
This 2 cd set will give you 2 1/2 hrs of pure listening pleasure. The quality of the performance and the recordings are very high. Decca is a renowned label for quality and this collection does not disappoint. Enjoy.
