Classical masterworks reinterpreted by the revered artists of Windham Hill Records. 

“…Violinist Tracy Silverman cuts one of his patented echo-delayed pizzicato violin arrangements of a Bach arioso, while Patrick O'Hearn drapes a somber keyboard shroud around the Adagio from Rodrigo's Fantasy for a Gentleman. Jeff Johnson and Brian Dunning find the Celtic air in the Adagio from Handel's Sonata in G, while Philip Aaberg discovers infinity between the notes of Barber's ubiquitous Adagio for Strings.”

– John Diliberto
host and senior producer of Echoes radio program

 “…David Benoit's jazzy remake of Brahms' Intermezzo No. 6 From Fantasies for Piano manages to take the piece in a relatively daring direction without sacrificing any of the melody's warmth. Not surprisingly, some of the most restrained performances on Adagio: A Windham Hill Collection are among the best: Mike Marshall and Edgar Meyer's version of Bach's Prelude in C-Sharp Minor From the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book II gets much of its loveliness from Marshall and Meyer's economical playing.”
