"Adagio" is a collaboration of pianist George Skaroulis and composer Chris Spheeris. Skaroulis arranged sixteen of Spheeris'
classic pieces for solo piano, giving them a personal and elegant interpretation of his own. I have several of Spheeris' early
albums, but for some reason, haven't kept up with his work. Hearing these pieces again has renewed my interest, and has also
sparked my enthusiasm for Skaroulis the interpreter as well as the composer and pianist. Most of the tracks are on the quiet
side, making this an introspective and relaxing album - wonderful for reading and/or unwinding. Favorite tracks include "Elektra,"
"Andalu," "Juliette," and "Field of Tears." "Adagio" is an outstanding album, and I highly recommend it to those who enjoy
reflective solo piano.
