A double meaning is at play in the title of Romantic Adagios II, a collection of pieces from the Romantic era that are long on candlelight-dinner sentiment as well. The languid, dreamy slow movement became most ardently romantic during the 19th century, as this two-CD compilation proves. Favorite adagios by composers from Beethoven and Mozart to Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, and Brahms will quench any listener's thirst for yearning melodies, expressive harmonies, and relaxing tempos. Also available: Romantic Adagios, Vol. 1
