I bought Romantic Adagios a few years ago (my first classical CD), and I'm still listening to it on a regular basis today. The variety of compositions are diverse, with some you may not be so familiar of, but all are true to the word Adagio, which means slowly. My favourite piece of music on the CD has to be Meditation (Thais): Massenet: Meditation (Thais), which is simply amazing to listen to, I couldn't get bored of it. The only disappointment with this purchase for me was The Carnival Of The Animals: Saint-Saens: The Swan, simply because I'd previously heard Jacqueline Du Pré's rendition of the same piece, and I feel she did it more justice. But still, if you are into music that is soothing and relaxing, then you can't go far wrong here.
