MUSIC THAT MOVES YOU
Adagio: a tempo marking, indicating that music is to be played slowly, or a composition intended to be played in this manner.
Drew’s approach to music is completely new, entirely novel. In a word he is unafraid to focus on any form, artist, genre to find music that moves us. To learn more visit RadioAdagio.
Adagio is a program of slowed-down bluesy music of all types. It’s primarily jazz and classical but all genres are welcome.
Selections draw primarily from North America and Europe, from the late 20th and 21st centuries. But the organizing principle of Adagio is neither genre, place nor time. It is depth of mood, and the magnetism of deep, slow, intentional music. It’s calming, spacious, and cinematic. It’s contemplative but not–god forbid–intellectual. Melody is paramount!
Derived from Italian ad agio, meaning to be at ease, Adagio is a respite from the race of modern times, one whose pace is closer to a resting heartbeat. And while tempo is crucial it’s not merely a matter of b/p/m. Selections are intended to captivate; to draw you in. And if you stop what you’re doing, tilt your head, and lean in a little closer, so much the better!
