Adagio sostenuto

Adagio sostenuto means 'Sustained & At Ease' and is the tempo and name of many classical pieces, not just Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2. The piece played at the Seattle gig is indeed the piece played at the end of Neutron Star Collision, but is not taken from Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2. It is only similar in it's tempo and pace. The piece is pretty much written by Matthew Bellamy.
