    Adagio (Secret Garden)

    Composer: Rolf Løvland
    Arranger & Performer: Ming Huang

    Rolf Undsæt Løvland (1955 - ) is a Norwegian composer, lyricist, arranger, and pianist. Together with Fionnuala Sherry, he formed the Celtic-Nordic group Secret Garden, in which he was the composer, producer, and keyboardist.

    Songs from a Secret Garden is the first international album by Secret Garden. Released in 1995, it includes the Norwegian winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, "Nocturne". The Allmusic reviewer Carol Wright awarded the album 4 stars, and it achieved platinum awards in Norway and South Korea. It stayed on the Billboard New Age chart for 101 weeks.

    The track "Song from a Secret Garden" became famous in Korea by being featured in the drama 젊은이의 양지 (which means "Sunny Spots (or Places) of the Young") in 1995 and was also used in the 2018 italian drama film Vittima della mia libertà ("Victim of my freedom") by Davide Guida. Another track from the album, "Adagio", was featured in the 2004 Wong Kar-wai film 2046. Another 1997 Hong Kong ATV drama 天長地久("Fated Love") also featured several tracks from this album, including "Song from a Secret Garden", "Adagio", "Serenade to Spring" and "Papillon".
