Sergei Rachmaninoff - Adagio from Symphony No. 2, arranged for flute orchestra by Shaul Ben-Meir. The Adagio from Symphony No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff is a beautiful and haunting piece of music. The Adagio is the second movement of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27, which was composed in 1906-1907. Throughout the Adagio, Rachmaninoff employs his signature lush and romantic orchestration, with many parts often playing together in unison to create a powerful, emotional effect. The movement reaches its climax with a soaring theme played by the C flutes, which is then echoed by the rest of the flute choir.
