Ekseption: Adagio

Ekseption from Haarlem were surprisingly successful with their pop/rock arrangements of classical melodies. They scored nine hits between 1969 and 1974, six of them in the seventies. Adagio is based on the composition originally ascribed to Albinoni. I much prefer the original classical version.

Year: 1970
Charted: 6 weeks
