Default Would it be "*Song Title* Adagio" or "*Song Title* (Adagio)"

I'm aware that this is a bit of a strange question, but I was recently tagging a game CD and noticed that there were two versions of the same track, a regular version and a second one labeled "*title* Adagio."

I've never seen nor can find any other examples of a song title being labeled as Adagio in the same way one might label a particular instrument. The only examples of Adagio I can even find are things like "Adagio for Strings" or "Adagio in G Minor."

I was looking for a second opinion on whether or not it should be placed within brackets the same way something like "*Title* (Piano)" might be. I'm under the impression that it should be since variant versions of songs seem to usually be specified in brackets, the only notable exemption being "Remix" which I've seen with and without brackets.

From what I know of classical, adagio is a style of playing, so I would imagine it would be part of the song title, not in brackets, eg "Symphony No. 2, 1st movement, allegretto", then "Symphony No.2, first movement, adagio" etc. But someone else may be better trained and knowledgeable about that, that's just my interpretation of it, FWIW.
