Celestial beauty, magnificent recording
A Music Lover | New York City, New York USA | 08/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although no longer a professional musician, I listen to classical music constantly, and unlike many of my former colleagues, I greatly enjoy listening to collections of movements from different pieces. Some of these collections work better than others, and having listened multiple times to all of the Adagio collections available, I am extremely fond of the Vivaldi. Some of the pieces are familiar, many are not, and that is part of the charm of this set. Vivaldi is a great melodist, and these tranquil pieces will transport you. Buy this set--you will listen to it again and again."
Outstanding Selection From Beginning To End
Classicalfan | Reston, VA USA | 11/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first CD in this 2-CD set might be sub-titled "Vivaldi's Greatest Adagio Hits" while the second CD has a wonderful compilation of adagio movements that are less well-known. The quality of the musicianship and of the recorded sound is excellent from the beginning to the end of these two CDs. I had heard all the selections on the first CD before, but the second CD had many selections that I heard for the first time. These two CDs show why Vivaldi was truly one of the greatest composers who ever lived. Every melody is wonderful and each track on these CDs flows smoothly to the next. This is a very well selected compilation of adagios that I have listened to many times with great pleasure. Very highly recommended."
Heavenly beautiful

"I have got 4 CDs from the "Adagio" series of Decca (Violin, movie, piano, Vivaldi). All of them are beautiful. But this one is absolutely my most favorite. I listened it again and again in the sunny weekend mornings or in the tranquil nights, I listened it when I was reading, strolling on line or just before sleeping. It is so beautiful, I did enjoyed every movement from it."
