 Symphony in C Major, Adagio is Exquisite March 5, 2014 By Marsha C. (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "This recording of this Adagio is featured in the film La Grande Bellezza, which is what awakened my senses to it. I heard much of the symphony before but not this movement for some reason. It is a very sensual movement and is gorgeous." Report Abuse
